Evaluation of 12-Week Shelf Life of Patient-Ready Endoscopes.

Gastroenterol Nurs 2019 Mar/Apr;42(2):159-164

Valerie Lacey, RN, BSN, CGRN, is Team Coordinator, Patient Care Services, Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, Charlottesville, Virginia. Karron Good, RN, ADN, CGRN, is Endoscopy Nurse, Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, Charlottesville, Virginia. Chris Toliver, RN, ADN, is Endoscopy Nurse, Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, Charlottesville, Virginia. Shirley Jenkins, MT (ASCP), is Microbiology Section Leader, Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, Charlottesville, Virginia. Pamela B. DeGuzman, PhD, is Assistant Professor, University of Virginia School of Nursing, Charlottesville.

Current research suggests that for certain types of gastrointestinal endoscopes, longer shelf life (the interval of storage after which endoscopes should be reprocessed before their reuse) may not increase the likelihood of endoscope contamination. Scope contamination may, in fact, be related primarily to either inadequate disinfection processes or inadvertent contamination during storage, not to duration of storage. The purpose of this study evaluated the presence of bacteria and fungus following liquid chemical sterilization in colonoscopes and gastroscopes, after 12 weeks of shelf life during which time personal protective equipment was used during endoscope storage cabinet access.

Gastroenterol Nurs 2019 Jan/Feb;42(1):49-54

Deborah Jo Kummer, BSN, RN, CGRN, is School Nurse, Hillel Community Day School, Rochester, New York; and previously, Staff Nurse, Highland Hospital Procedure Center, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York. Bonnie J. Walden, MS, RN, CNL, is Professor of Nursing, Nazareth College, Rochester, New York; and previously, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Strong Memorial Hospital, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York.

The purpose of this Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates Fellowship project was to determine whether capnography is more accurate than oximetry in identifying symptoms of respiratory depression in patients undergoing moderate sedation. Capnography provides an early warning of respiratory depression and airway compromise, especially when the medications used for sedation include opiates and benzodiazepines. It is a standard of care according to the American Society of Anesthesiologists that should be adopted in order to provide the safest possible environment for the delivery of moderate sedation.

Given the chronic nature of inflammatory bowel disease, understanding the coping behaviors of individuals affected with the disease is important to influence health outcomes. Although minorities comprise a significant portion of individuals with the disease, little is known about the potential influence of one's culture, specifically among African Americans, on coping with inflammatory bowel disease. This integrative literature review examined the past decade of research related to the coping behaviors of African Americans living with inflammatory bowel disease to identify opportunities for further research.

Although interchangeably used with abnormal liver enzymes, abnormal liver function tests specifically denote a loss of synthetic functions usually evaluated by serum albumin and prothrombin time.
