Pins and Caps
Hi there :) I'm Kim, I'm 23 and welcome to my blog ^_^ I am a registered nurse with a Bachelor's Degree, and I'll start my Master's program on March 30, 2011 :)
This is where I post nursing-related things/articles/pictures, and inspirational thoughts. I sometimes post things about me and my daily life :D So enjoy. If you want to ask something, just fire it out ^__^
A tip from your favorite nurse
(that’d be me)
Always have eggs in your fridge
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is
Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
I did some research on this (because I do that now, fucking science get out) and it seems that this was done in the early 1900s somewhat frequently. It was used as a way to treat just about any kind of skin wound, from burn to cut to in at least one case an ulcer. It actually helps the wound heal not by preventing blood loss but by replacing part of the skin tissue and helping it grow.
It also helps in healing scars and reducing their visibility.
GOTTA CRACK A FEW EGGS TO MAKE AN OMELETTE AM I RIGHT
Heart attacks symptoms are different for women. I recently learned this.
Everyone should know these things.
thanks to mainstream media and being unable to show breasts on TV, way too few people know about female signs of cardiac distress, and impending heart attacks. they only know about the “pain in the left arm” male symptom.
i had all these symptoms once and they sent me right to hospital
it was scary bc i didnt know these were the symptoms for female heart issues
Please, please, PLEASE, reblog this. i don’t know if I did save or called false alarm, with my boss’ life tonight. I felt I was being a bit paranoid, overreacting, but I told Mirage my thoughts and he, after reading over the article I showed him, immediately sprung into action and then shooed her off to the hospital. I don’t know if I did or not, but I knew she’d been super stressed. She’d off-handedly commented on her arm tingling and I asked her if she felt queasy on a hunch. I went to look at the symptoms and we went from there.
Doctors diagnose. Nurses cure.
Nurses: One of the few blessings of being ill.
My Tumblr Theme Is No Longer Working
I have to admit I haven’t been around for the longest time, and as soon as I checked my site, my heart sank as soon as I saw how it looks like. Theme is no longer working :(
Finding a great theme that would match my profile and what my Tumblr is all about is such a tedious task! Gaah~ I hope in the following hours I will be able to find a perfect theme for my site!
this is so fucked up
For the love of god
I’ve smoked only about 4 ciggs in my life and this already makin me wanna stop
It looks like someone is blowing air into a rotting plum
this needs to be seen by everyone
I smoked for a long time and its terrible. I dont anymore and the difference in my daily life is astounding. I can breathe so much better. Also lets not forget that once you start that addiction doesnt go away. Its been over a year since ive completely quit and its a struggle every day.
I thought we only got a day dedicated to nurses!
Happy Nurses Week my fellow nurses!
