Title The Incidence of post-catheterization hemorrhage following two methods of nursing management
Date 1979-06
Description In this descriptive study, the incidence of hemorrhage following two methods of nursing management (Method A and Method B) was compared. Method A ( sandbag) involved placing a pressure dressing and a sandbag on the catheterization site, after removal of the catheter from the femoral artery. Method B (pressure) involved placing manual pressure for so minutes on the catheterization site after removal of the catheter from the femoral artery. The population (N = 29) consisted of patients undergoing femoral artery catheterization. The subjects were managed, after their catheterization, following either musing management Method A (sandbag) or nursing management Method B (pressure). The catheterization site and any dressing, was observed for evidence of post-catheterization hemorrhage. If bleeding occurred, the time it occurred and surrounding circumstances were recorded. The major finding was one incident of post-catheterization hemorrhage in Method B (pressure). This did not have any significance and the methods were determined to be equal in terms of patient safety. Method A (sandbag) was determined to be desirable in terms of potential post-effectiveness, and management of musing time.
