[Adverse reactions to iodinated contrast media].

Enferm Clin 2010 Sep-Oct;20(5):297-300. Epub 2010 Aug 19.

Escuela Universitaria de Enfermería de la Universidad de Barcelona, Barcelona, España.

Objective: The aim of the study is to determine the incidence of adverse reactions to iodinated contrast media and to characterise them in a group of outpatients, inpatients and emergency patients in a private hospital in Barcelona.

Method: A retrospective cohort study was carried out over a 60 months period, from February 2002 to February 2007, analysing the patients who underwent to iodinated contrast radiological examinations. Adverse reactions were evaluated from the manual record format developed following the requirements of the Quality Assurance Program in Radiology. Study variables were, administration route, contrast media dose, adverse reaction type, and signs and symptoms. Statistical analysis was descriptive.

Results: A total of 68 (0.3 %) of adverse reaction were registered of which 64 were mild (94.1%), 4 moderate (5.9%) and none severe. On the basis of the administration route (intravenous or oral) adverse reaction were 67 (94%) and 1 (6%) respectively. With a 40-80ml contrast media dose by injection, mild adverse reactions were 87.5%, moderate 12.5% and severe 0%. With a 90-150ml contrast media dose by injection, mild adverse reaction were 94.9% and moderate 5.1%.

Conclusions: The number of adverse reaction using iodinated contrast media is low and are they are generally mild; however the nurse must be ready to recognise and treat them.

[Nursing care in patients undergoing interventional neuroendovascular procedures].

Enferm Clin 2009 May-Jun;19(3):160-3. Epub 2009 May 12.

Vascular interventional radiology (VIR) procedures have increased markedly, partly due to the current healthcare context, which encourages the use of less invasive procedures that reduce pressure on surgery departments and decrease hospital stays. In most patients, these techniques can be carried out in a single intervention. VIR procedures are based on the possibility of gaining access to vascular structures through a catheter inserted percutaneously without the need for open surgery. Due to the complexity of these procedures, hospitalization is required before and after the technique is performed but length of stay is short compared with that associated with surgery. As the health workers closest to patients, nurses must respond to their information needs. The provision of comprehensive nursing care should include all the care required before, during and after the procedure and all aspects related to the quality of the healthcare process. Knowledge of how diagnostic and therapeutic VIR techniques are performed in the neurovascular section is essential. Based on the authors' experience, the present article aims to provide nurses with knowledge of some neurointerventional procedures (cerebral angiography and embolization of intracranial aneurysms) and of the care provided in RVI rooms.
