Today, Registered Dietitian Caroline Weeks discusses the medical nutrition therapy recommendations for patients diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Disclaimer: This video is for educational purposes only and is not intended as medical advice and not as a comprehensive overview for a the medical nutrition therapy for diabetes. It should be noted that therapy recommendations change over time. ◤Caroline's Bio◥ Caroline Weeks, RDN, LD currently works as a clinical pediatric dietitian in the areas of Cystic Fibrosis, Gastroenterology, and Endocrinology. She has two bachelor degrees from Iowa State University in Dietetics and Music Performance and in her spare time she plays as a professional violist in the Des Moines Symphony. According to Caroline: "I love what a complement the dietitian can be to the interdisciplinary team. Not only does an RDN have a firm clinical knowledge of varying disease states, medications and drug-nutrient interactions, but we also have both a biochemical and practical knowledge of food and how it should be prepared. No matter if your child is in critical need or is growing and developing normally, balanced nutrition promotes healing and/or prevention of chronic disease." "The foods we choose to nourish our bodies are entirely individual. Our family traditions, culture, and upbringing all influence how we feed our families. As a dietitian, it is not my job to judge these customs and choices, but rather to support and guide you to ensure your child is receiving a balanced and healthy diet that allows him or her to thrive." -Caroline Weeks Social Media: YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/carolinecweeks Instagram: @carolinecweeksrd Facebook: ◤HI◥🎉 Remember to subscribe, like & comment.

Best foods to eat when breastfeeding
 
04:29
What are the best foods to eat when breastfeeding? Many new moms feel that when they have a newborn, they have to choose between taking a shower, taking a nap or eating. It is absolutely critical that you take the time to eat a healthy balanced diet with as many fruits and vegetables as possible according to Kimberly Gilroy (NYS Certified Holistic Health Counselor). That means choosing organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible, grass fed animals when choosing meat, and when buying foods that are canned, trying to avoid manufacturers that still use BPA in their cans. BPA has been banned in the European Union, Japan, China and Canada. In animal studies, BPA has been linked to ADHD, early onset of puberty, obesity, reduced sperm count, early stages of breast cancer, altered immune function, poor motor skills and learning disabilities. This leads to the obvious question, ‘How can you avoid BPA?’ or “How to find BPA free cans?’ After a lot of googling and reading, the best answer we found was in Time Magazine. Briefly, Time says “BPA-Free may Be Meaningless”. Apparently, manufactures often replace BPA with 2 other compounds called BPS and BPF. These ‘new’ compounds are structured very similar to BPA, which is what makes them good replacements for BPA. Unfortunately for us, these 2 replacement compounds, BPS and BPF, are hormonally active similar to BPA. Another resource we liked is bpafreepackage.org. As when pregnant, if you are breastfeeding, you will want to avoid caffeine, minimize sugar, and minimize or eliminate any alcoholic beverages. In a perfect world, you would have 3 balanced meals everyday. But when you have a new baby, that is just really difficult to do. At a minimum, try to have at least one balanced meal every day. Between meals, choose healthy snacks like cut-up fruits and vegetables and cheese with whole grain crackers can help a lot. Try to avoid cookies, chips and other salty snacks that do not offer much nutritional value. Joy Padula (RN, IBCLC, Lactation Consultant) tells us “Breast milk is made up of mostly water, so it pulls a lot of water from you, therefore leaving you more parched and thirsty – so listen to your body and follow it’s cues.” You should always have a glass of water near you. Sometimes it’s difficult to drink the 8 glasses of water a day that is recommended. Also keep in mind, if you are eating a lot of fruits and vegetables, they are made up of mostly, so that counts as part of your water intake. The bottom line when breastfeeding, it is very important to focus on your water intake and make sure you are hydrating your body enough. Remember, you are drinking for two! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tda4ySk777Q Visit Our Website at: http://videoknit.com/breastfeeding-diet Learn how to bathe your newborn baby at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhznYiCIAD0

Fluids & Electrolytes Made Simple
 
03:30
Sit down, strap your seatbelt and get ready to get educated about my quick and easy breakdown of fluids and electrolytes that all my fellow Nursebrothers and NurseSisters are going to understand for their upcoming exams to pass to become that future RN. Shaaaaowwwww!!! lol Goodluck There are many changes in our fluid and electrolytes, but maintaining equal balance of input and output is important as we receive our fluids and electrolytes from food and drinks where its absorbed in our GI tract or IV therapy entering our intravascular compartment. So our simple element of Water is vital for our body because it actually helps carry out our electrolytes, its also acts like a solvent, even as a lubricant, and a cushion for our joints as it maintains our blood volume. REMEMBER THESE 3 TYPES OF SOLUTION 1. Hypertonic Solution = Shrunken Blood Cell 2. Isotonic Solution = Normal Blood Cell 3. Hypotonic Solution = Swollen Blood Cell ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Don't Forget to Follow NurseMendoza & P.L.A.N ✌🏽️Peace ❤️Love 🗣Advocate 😷NURSEpiration ------- Thank you for watching this video my fellow nurses, student nurses and aspiring nurses.

"Integrative Diet & Nutrition to Complement Cancer Care" with Jeanne M. Wallace, PhD, CNC
 
01:15:36
The environment within the body can "talk" to cancer cells. What do we want it to say? Dr. Wallace will introduce the concept of Oncometabolic Syndrome, a cluster of nutritional and metabolic factors that can influence the growth and progression of cancer. Discussion of dietary and nutritional strategies will be presented which can modulate these factors, thereby reducing the oncogenic potential of a tumor. Our focus will be on specific evidence-based foods, nutrients, and spices to quench inflammation, alter gene expression, and balance blood sugar in ways that can empower cancer patients to harness the power of nutrition to complement their medical care. Jeanne M. Wallace, PhD, CNC, is widely regarded as one of the nation's most prominent experts in nutritional oncology. She is the founder of Nutritional Solutions Consulting Group which provides consulting to cancer patients throughout the U.S. and abroad about evidence-based dietary, nutritional and botanical support to complement conventional cancer care. She is an independent consultant to oncologists, naturopaths and other health care providers working with cancer patients, and has provided educational training to numerous integrative cancer centers. Specializing in primary malignant brain tumors since 1997, Dr. Wallace also has extensive experience working with clients with breast, ovarian, colorectal, lung, pancreatic and squamous cell head-and-neck cancers, and malignant melanoma. In 2001, she submitted a "Best Case Series" of 101 Glioblastoma multiforme (stage IV brain tumor) patients to the National Cancer Institute's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCI/NCCAM). This data was updated April 2004 to include 325 consecutive cases, and was favorably reviewed. Combining her Functional Medicine perspective and wise translational research, Dr. Wallace's approach is grounded in the evolving understanding of the interrelationship between nutritional and metabolic factors and the hallmark characteristics of cancer cells (dysregulated cell signaling, altered gene expression, genetic instability, evasion of apoptosis, lack of differentiation, neoangiogenesis, invasion and metastasis). She is a tireless instigator in the emerging trend toward individualization of therapies for cancer patients. A locavore and gourmet cook, she maintains a thriving edible landscape, complete with edible flowers, an organic vegetable garden, medicinal and culinary herbs, and an orchard of rare and heirloom fruits (over 60 cultivars) on one acre at 4600 ft elevation in the foothills of the intermountain west.

Snakehead fish farming is low investment excessive earnings commercial enterprise. Snakehead fish can start farming very small pond. Snakehead fish channa striates fowler is the maximum wildly disbursed, economically critical member of the genus. Distribution ranges from china to India, Ceylon and Southeast Asia, in rivers, lakes, swamps, marshes, canals and ponds. It's far one of the most common staple meals fish in Thailand and different components of Southeast Asia and appeared by the Chinese language as a food fish for recuperation wounds. Know Detail Subscribe this Channel: https://goo.gl/V25i45 Snakehead Fish Culture System: Snakehead is cultured in a monoculture system. The tradition operation is very in depth with continuous gravity waft of water if the farm is adjoining to an irrigation canal or day by day water alternate by way of pumping from a canal or river into the pond, 2–four hours an afternoon. Commonly pond length ranges from 800–1000 m2 and 2 hundred–four hundred m2 in suphanburi and smut songkhram respectively. The most advantageous pond size is 800 m2 because the lifestyle machine could be very in depth. The 2 hundred–400 m2 ponds are a great length for farmer who has constrained land and capital. Snakehead Fish Site Suitability: Websites subsequent to canals or rivers with good enough water of exact best furnished by gravity or tidal flow or by way of pumping and now not too far inland are suitable for snakehead lifestyle. Snakehead fish feeding: Fry are fed with sparkling trash fish on my own or ninety five% trash fish and five% rice bran, four–five times an afternoon at 15% of frame weight/day for the 2 months or nursing duration. For the duration of the nursing length 0.5% of nutrition blend is supplemented in the food plan and zero.1% peperazine as medication is introduced as soon as very 3 weeks. In a while the feed composition is modified to 90% trash fish and 10% rice bran. The feeding frequency is reduced to 2 instances a day and feeding price is reduced from 14 to twelve% from the third month to the fifth month. The feeding price is decreased progressively from 12% to four% from the 5th month to the eleventh month. Consequently, the quantity of feed given per day in line with pond is sort of regular from the 5th month to the eleventh month.

Fluid and Electrolytes - Introduction
 
05:02
EmpoweRN.com Here is a link to my website, for more questions :) http://empowern.com/2015/06/fe/ Stay tuned for more videos! Introduction to: Fluid and Electrolyte Balance Fluid and electrolyte balances are necessary for homeostasis. This presentation and following videos will help you become better aware of how to assist patients in regaining and maintaining homeostasis. We will also discuss normal and abnormal fluid and electrolyte balances, the factors that contribute to imbalances, types of imbalances, and nursing interventions you can use to correct imbalances. Part 1 will focus on “fluid balance” Including: Hypovolemia and hypervolemia and then Part 2 will cover “electrolyte balance” and look at each electrolyte individually. Each of these will be broken down into bit size videos for better understanding and added to a playlist, so that it is easy to find the next video! So…let’s get started! First, we’ll speak to the Importance of Fluid Balance in Our Bodies… Fluid is a major component of our body. It serves a vital role in our health, and in normal cellular function by serving as a medium for metabolic reactions within the cell. It also is the transporter of nutrients and waste products, a lubricant, an insulator, and a shock absorber. Fluid serves as a means of regulating, or maintaining body temperature. Fluids may enter the body through the food we eat and the beverage we drink. Fluids leave the body mainly by the elimination process of urine, feces and through the skin. The amount of water in our bodies declines with age. For instance, a newborn’s body consists of about 75% fluid, while a healthy adult’s body is composed of 60% fluid. 40% of the body’s water is in the Intercellular space which you will see abbreviated as ICF which stands for Intracellular Fluid (ICF). The extracellular fluid which you will see abbreviated as (ECF) accounts for 20% of body weight: 14% in the interstitial space, and 5% in the intravascular space. Transcellular fluid, like the cerebrospinal fluid and fluid contained in other body spaces such as: Joint space, pleural, peritoneal, and pericardial spaces, makes up the remaining 1% of the total ECF Extracellular Fluid. Extracellular and intracellular fluids contain solutes, which are: substances dissolved in the body fluid such as: Dissolved nutrients, waste products and charged particles called ions or electrolytes. Fluid and electrolytes play a vital role in homeostasis which is – the ability of the body or a cell to seek and maintain a condition of equilibrium or stability within its internal environment when dealing with external changes. Homeostasis must exist for the cells to function properly. To maintain homeostasis, fluids move between compartments through selectively permeable membranes by a variety of methods such as: Diffusion Active transport Filtration and Osmosis, whenever there is a need for readjustment caused by external stimuli. The fluid in each compartment has to be stable or be maintained in specific limits because deviation outside these limits creates a fluid imbalance and can result in serious or life-threatening consequences. Fluid imbalances can either be isotonic or osmolar. Isotonic imbalance is when water and electrolytes are lost or gained in equal proportion, thus osmolality of the body fluids remains constant. Osmolar imbalance involves the loss or gain of only water, so that osmolality is altered. The word osmolar means the measure of solute concentration. Solutes include particles like electrolytes. One thing to know when you are learning fluid and electrolytes: “Iso” such as Isotonic - the value is considered to have the same solute concentration of blood. However, when you see: when you see - Hypo with an O - the value is considered lower than normal And when you see Hyper with ER - the value is considered to be higher than normal. For example: Hyperkalemia - means elevated potassium levels, when compared to normal values and the opposite hypokalemia means low potassium levels when compared to normal values. And

Pancreatitis Diet - 20 Foods That Will Heal The Pancreas
 
03:07
The pancreas is very important to the digestive system. Its exocrine cells help produce enzymes which help digest food. Pancreatitis is an inflammation of an organ called the pancreas. Individuals with chronic pancreatitis are suggested to have a low-fat diet (maximum 20 g per day). Avoid greasy, fried, and fatty foods. These foods are hard to digest with an altered pancreas. Moreover, pass on cheese, full-fat milk, and yogurt as well. Also avoid trans fats which are mostly found in fast food, packaged baked goods, and frozen pizza. Here Is A List Of Foods That Will Heal The Pancreas (Pancreatitis Diet): #1 Broccoli #2 Blueberries #3 Red Grapes #4 Red Cabbage #5 Rutabaga #6 Quinoa #7 Spinach #8 Sweet Potato #9 Carrots #10 Garlic #11 Radish #12 Oats #13 Mushrooms #14 Peppers #15 Turmeric #16 Apples #17 Zucchini #18 Kale #19 Papaya #20 Onion More videos to watch: #1 25 Superfoods That Clean Arteries Of Plaque - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2LkG8IDhXs #2 Top 30 Fruits High in Vitamin E - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2XiEX_DV5g #3 Top 25 Foods High In CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEqbYnRHaEU Music: http://www.purple-planet.com mages - pixabay In this video you learned about diet for pancreatitis, pancreas health food, foods good for pancreas, pancreas food, pancreas healthy food, heal your pancreas, how to naturally heal your pancreas.

Bed Sores & Risk Factors - Nursing Home Neglect - Law Bytes
 
01:52
Bedsores, or pressure ulcers as they are sometimes called, are a serious and unfortunate common occurrence among residents in nursing homes. This is so because the most significant risk factor of developing a bedsore is immobility--someone who cannot move or get out of bed on their own and must depend on the care of another. Because most bedsores are preventable, the mere existence of one may indicate medical negligence and a failure by the nursing home to properly reposition a resident, among other failures. In short, a pressure ulcer is caused by unrelieved pressure on the skin that results in damage to the underlying skin tissue. There are four stages of bedsores. Stage I is an observable redness (alteration of skin) caused by pressure. Stage II is an observable thinning of a skin area and appears as a blister or abrasion. Stage III is an observable thinning and skin loss with damage to the underlying tissue and appears as a deep crater or blister. Stage IV is a full skin loss with extensive damage to the skin and underlying tissue, involving necrosis (rotting of skin) and may cause damage to the muscle and bone. When someone is first admitted to a nursing home, the nursing home should perform a full evaluation of the resident to determine the existence of any risk factors for developing a bedsore. The following are a number of risk factors that should be considered by a nursing home when caring for a resident to prevent a bedsore: a. Immobility-confined to bed or a chair. b. Inability to turn or reposition oneself. c. Poor or inadequate nutrition and hydration. d. Altered level of consciousness. e. Medical condition that may cause weakening of the skin. If a resident has one or more of these risk factors, the nursing home should take proper steps to prevent the development of bedsores. Having these risk factors does excuse the nursing home if a bedsore develops, it only means the nursing home should provide additional care to prevent them. To prevent the development of bedsores in an at-risk resident, there are many steps that should be taken: a. Turn and reposition the resident a minimum of every two hours so that the pressure on the skin is relieved. b. Inspection of the skin at least once daily for evidence of any redness. c. Reduce the elevation of the head of the bed to reduce friction-the resident sliding down in the bed. d. Keep the skin dry and clean. e. Make sure the resident has proper nutrition - adequate calorie and protein intake. This helps the skin get nourishment and stay healthy. f. Activity. The nursing home should attempt to improve the mobility of the resident. g. Use of an air mattress or other specialized bed helps reduce pressure to the areas of the skin that receives the most pressure. These steps are fundamental and should be taken by the nursing home. Existence of a bedsore usually means one or more of the above steps were not followed by the nursing home. And if after all precaution and necessary steps are taken, a resident develops a bedsore, which is doubtful, the nursing home has a responsibility to take an active and aggressive approach to healing the bedsore. The most important part of healing a bedsore is early detection. This should be accomplished if the nursing performed the daily skin inspection. If a bedsore is not detected until Stage II or later, this is an indication that the daily skin inspections were likely not taking place. After detection of a bedsore, a review of the resident's charts should be made to identify what caused the bedsore. At that time, all caregivers (dietician, doctor, nurse, and CNA) should be consulted to develop a care plan to promote healing of the bedsore. The dietician should make sure the resident has proper nutrition and to adopt a diet that promotes the healing of the bedsores and nourish the skin. A re-evaluation should be made of the care plan if the bedsore is not healing. Bedsores are arguably the most serious problems facing residents in nursing homes today. Unfortunately, because most can be prevented, this means that nursing homes are simply not caring for the residents in most of these bedsore incidents (the section of this nursing home guide on staffing illustrates how the necessary care is not being provided).

Medical Surgical Respiratory System: Pneumonia
 
38:14
Here are some Extra information that may help and guide you... Risk Factor: Conditions that produce mucus or bronchial obstruction and interfere with normal lung drainage (eg, cancer, cigarette smoking, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Immunosuppressed patients and those with a low neutrophil count (neutropenic). Smoking; cigarette smoke disrupts both mucociliary and macrophage Activity. Prolonged immobility and shallow breathing pattern. Depressed cough reflex (due to medications, a debilitated state, or weak respiratory muscles); aspiration of foreign material into the lungs during a period of unconsciousness (head injury, anesthesia, depressed level of consciousness), or abnormal swallowing mechanism. Nothing-by-mouth (NPO) status; placement of nasogastric, orogastric, or endotracheal tube. Supine positioning in patients unable to protect their airway. Antibiotic therapy (in very ill people, the oropharynx is likely to be colonized by gram-negative bacteria). Alcohol intoxication (because alcohol suppresses the body’s reflexes, may be associated with aspiration, and decreases white cell mobilization and tracheobronchial ciliary motion). General anesthetic, sedative, or opioid preparations that promote respiratory depression, which causes a shallow breathing pattern and predisposes to the pooling of bronchial secretions and potential development of pneumonia. Advanced age, because of possible depressed cough and glottic reflexes and nutritional depletion. Respiratory therapy with improperly cleaned equipment. Transmission of organisms from health care providers. Preventive Measures: Promote coughing and expectoration of secretions. Encourage smoking cessation. Initiate special precautions against infection. Initiate suctioning and chest physical therapy if indicated. Reposition frequently to prevent aspiration and administer medications. Promote frequent oral hygiene. Minimize risk for aspiration by checking placement of tube and proper positioning of patient. Elevate head of bed at least 30 degrees. Monitor patients receiving antibiotic therapy for signs and symptoms of pneumonia. Encourage reduced or moderate alcohol intake. Observe the respiratory rate and depth during recovery from general anesthesia and before giving medications. If respiratory depression is apparent, withhold the medication and contact the physician. Promote frequent turning, early ambulation and mobilization, effective coughing, breathing exercises, and nutritious diet. Make sure that respiratory equipment is cleaned properly; participate in continuous quality improvement monitoring with the respiratory care department. Use strict hand hygiene and gloves. Implement health care provider education. Treatment for Pneumonia Complications: A vasopressor agent may be administered by continuous IV infusion and at a rate adjusted in accordance with the pressure response. Corticosteroids may be administered parenterally to combat shock and toxicity in patients who are extremely ill with pneumonia and at apparent risk for death from the infection. Patients may require endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation. Patho: Normally, the upper airway prevents potentially infectious particles from reaching the sterile lower respiratory tract. Pneumonia arises from normal flora present in patients whose resistance has been altered or from aspiration of flora present in the oropharynx; patients often have an acute or chronic underlying disease that impairs host defenses. Pneumonia may also result from bloodborne organisms that enter the pulmonary circulation and are trapped in the pulmonary capillary bed. Pneumonia affects both ventilation and diffusion. An inflammatory reaction can occur in the alveoli, producing an exudate that interferes with the diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide. White blood cells, mostly neutrophils, also migrate into the alveoli and fill the normally air-filled spaces. Areas of the lung are not adequately ventilated because of secretions and mucosal edema that cause partial occlusion of the bronchi or alveoli, with a resultant decrease in alveolar oxygen tension. Bronchospasm may also occur in patients with reactive airway disease. Because of hypoventilation, a ventilation–perfusion mismatch occurs in the affected area of the lung. Venous blood entering the pulmonary circulation passes through the underventilated area and travels to the left side of the heart poorly oxygenated. The mixing of oxygenated and unoxygenated or poorly oxygenated blood eventually results in arterial hypoxemia. If a substantial portion of one or more lobes is involved, the disease is referred to as lobar pneumonia. The term bronchopneumonia is used to describe pneumonia that is distributed in a patchy fashion, having originated in one or more localized areas within the bronchi and extending to the adjacent surrounding lung parenchyma. Bronchopneumonia is more common than lobar pneumonia
