Academic Testing Institute (ATI)--A Tool for NCLEX-RN Exam Success: In preparation for taking the NCLEX-RN exam, and as part of the nursing program, students will be required to participate in the Academic Testing Institute's (ATI) Comprehensive Assessment & Review Program (CARP). ATI-CARP is progressive and sequential. At the beginning of each semester students are required to pay directly to ATI online and register for their resources and permits for exams. Each semester, different resources and content exams will be administered. Semester 6 has been selected to give the following ATI exam(s): Maternal-Newborn and Nursing Care of Children. The ATI exams for Semester 6 will be given during a Nursing 136 class period approximately 2 weeks before the final exams. ATI points earned will apply to Nursing 126 course points. The maximum a student can achieve in Nursing 126 course is 400 points. From three to five percent of the total points in this course will be awarded to students achieving the specific scores on the semester ATI exam.

Some ethnic groups, such as Asian, Native American, Anglo-Saxon-Germanic, Anglo- Saxon& Irish, do not openly express pain. People of Latin American, Italian, & Jewish descent are more likely to use both verbal & nonverbal methods to express pain freely. However, children have individualized responses, & younger children have had less time to acquire culturally learned behaviors. Cultural Considerations The cultural experiences of health care professionals often contribute to their outdated attitudes about pain experiences by children. For example, health care workers may believe that being in pain for a little while is not so bad, that pain helps build character, or that using pain medication is a sign of a weak character. False Beliefs About Pain & Pain Medication in Children Children without obvious physical reasons for pain = no pain. Neonates do not feel pain. Children do not feel pain with the same intensity as adults because a child's nervous system is immature. Children tolerate discomfort well. They become accustomed to pain after having it for a while. Children tell you if they are in pain. They do not need medication unless they appear to be in pain. False Beliefs About Pain... Children are not in pain if they can be distracted or they are sleeping. Children recover more quickly than adults from painful experiences such as surgery. Parents exaggerate or aggravate their child's pain. Children have no memory of pain. False Beliefs About Pain... Narcotics are dangerous for children because they can cause respiratory depression & addiction. The best route for giving analgesics is intra-muscular. intraAfter surgery, children should not receive the next analgesic dose until they show obvious signs of pain. As-needed medication orders mean that Asmedication should be given as infrequently as possible. Physiologic Consequences of Unrelieved Pain in Children Response to Pain Respiratory Changes Rapid shallow breathing Inadequate lung expansion Inadequate cough Physiologic Consequences Alkalosis oxygen saturation Retention of secretions HR, sleep patterns; blood glucose, cortisol levels. fluid & electrolyte losses Neurological Changes sympathetic nervous system activity Metabolic Changes metabolic rate with perspiration Characteristics of Conscious Sedation & Deep Sedation Assessment Factors Airway Conscious Sedation Able to maintain airway independently & continuously Deep Sedation Unable to maintain airway independently or continuously Cough & gag reflexes Level of consciousness Reflexes intact Partial or complete loss of reflexes Not easily aroused, may not respond purposefully to verbal or gentle physical stimulation Easily aroused with verbal or gentle physical stimulation Nursing Alert Respiratory Depression (a respiratory rate less than 20 breaths/min in infants, 16 breaths/min in children, & 12 breaths/min in adolescents) may progress to respiratory arrest & is the major lifelifethreatening complication of opioid administration. Identify the time interval before drugdrugspecific peak respiratory depression occurs, & then carefully monitor the child's vital signs during that period. child' Nursing Alert To prevent overdose, the PCA computerized pump has safety features that include the ability to set the maximum number of infusions per hour & the maximum amount of drug received in a given time period. Nursing Alert Conscious sedation monitor the child's vital signs child' advanced life support if the child should progress to deep sedation. In case complications occur, the following equipment should be immediately available: suction apparatus, a bag-valve mask for assisted bagventilation with capability of 90%-100% oxygen 90%delivery, & oxygen supply (5L/min for more than 60 minutes), & antagonists to sedative medication. Legal & Ethical Considerations Most children are unaware of their right to pain relief. Nurses & health care institutions have a duty to prevent & alleviate suffering. Pain management should be an institutional priority with a standard of care. Nurses have an ethical responsibility to monitor implementation of that standard. Legality & Ethics... There is growing consensus that placebo use to assess & manage pain should be avoided, especially without consent. Studies suggest that placebos tend to be used for patients who are disliked, with whom staff have conflicts, or who have failed to respond to standard treatment. Placebo use involves deception. You must respect the patient's right to be patient' informed of treatment. Clinical Tips The presence of physiologic symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, dyspnea, bladder & bowel distention, & fever may influence the intensity of pain felt by a child. The child's behavior or responses to child' pain stimuli may also be affected by fear, anxiety, separation from parents, anger, culture, age, or previous pain experience. Clinical Tips When help in describing pain is needed, give the child over 6 years of age some words to select from, such as sharp, dull, aching, pounding, cold, hot, burning, throbbing, stinging, tingling, or cutting. Children do not exhibit distress in direct proportion to their pain intensity. Thus, behavioral measures may not match the child's self-report of pain intensity. child' self- Clinical Tips Surgery & trauma = multiple sites of pain (incision or laceration, cut or bruised muscles, interrupted blood supply, nasogastric tubes placement, insertion sites of intravenous lines). When using pain scales in the assessment of a verbal child, attempt to identify ALL sites of pain. Then evaluate the intensity of pain at each site. Clinical Tips Clinical signs that predict the development of respiratory depression include sleepiness, small pupils, & shallow breathing. Children at particular risk for respiratory depression induced by a narcotic are those with an altered level of consciousness, an unstable circulatory status, a history of apnea, or a know airway problem. Clinical Tips Pain management kit--promote distraction, kit--promote imagery, & relaxation in children. Items that might be included are magic wands, pin-wheels, pinbubble liquid, a slinky spring toy, a foam ball, party noisemakers, & pop-up books. popIt may also be helpful to include items for therapeutic play such as syringes, adhesive bandages, alcohol swabs, & other supplies from a medical kit. The pain management kit may be especially helpful for children who are being prepared for surgery or for painful procedures & need to be distracted. Clinical Tips Help children manage the pain from immunizations by "blowing away the shot pain". pain" As a form of distraction & imagery have the child repeatedly blow out air during the injection as if blowing bubbles EMLA--what is it? how to use? EMLA-- Felicia--5 yo, struck by a car. 6ago repair a liver Felicia--5 laceration. After spending 5 PACU, Peds Unit.; IV + Unit.; NG to suction. Abd. dressing--clean & dry. dressing--clean Felicia's mother rooming in. Because Felicia is thrashing in. around, her mother thinks she is in pain. She asks the nurse to give her some pain medication. When the nurse enters Felicia's room, she is napping & her facial expression indicates that she is not in pain. When the nurse attempts to straighten her position in bed, she moans. The nurse asks Felicia if she hurts, & she shakes her head no. According to Felicia's chart, she received pain medication just before her transfer from the post-anesthesia unit 3 hours ago. Her physician has postordered pain medication every 3-4 hours as needed. How do you know whether Felicia is in pain ? Can you expect her to tell you if she feels pain? Is any additional assessment needed to justify giving Felicia more pain medication? What other pain relief measures could reduce or help to control her pain?
