“Discover gratitude, awareness, and stillness in concert with the world in motion around you.” ~Rooted Times
As a registered nurse, I strive to find the meaning behind optimal wellness through evidence-based research—without discounting the placebo effect. Reading about the evolution of the nervous system in relation to activity, stress, emotion, and circulation is oddly soothing to me. Consequently, the central theme of my study is about the interrelationship between mind, body, and movement; in other words, cognitive and emotional states affecting bodily experiences, and vice versa.
Urgent and life-threatening medical emergencies can trigger an adrenaline, fight or flight, response. ACLS training, as well as basic life support and pediatric advanced life support, ensures that health professionals prepare for these unexpected situations. Continual review of patient scenarios allows for the delivery of calm, safe, and quality care when stressful events arise.
For more than 10 years I’ve been teaching and practicing a step-by-step approach to phlebotomy and intravenous (IV) therapy using physical, psychological, and emotional support as a complement to implementing IV therapy safely and accurately. I emphasize compliance with applicable federal, state, and facility regulations and standards; document control, error management, and review of regulatory standards are a crucial aspect of ensuring the safety of the community.
