Random Nursing Bullets


Tongue blades are contraindicated with acute epiglottitis and may cause the epiglottis to spasm.

The classic signs of epiglottitis are drooling, sitting upright, and leaning forward with chin thrust out, mouth open, and tongue protruding.

Keep a child with epiglottitis upright to ease breathing and prevent aspiration or airway obstruction.

Hyperplasia is an excessive growth of normal cells that causes an increase in the volume of a tissue or organ.

The child with right lower lobe pneumonia should be placed on the left side.
