    Critical care nurses'  experiences of performing successful peripheral intravenous catherisation i difficult situations2018In: Journal of Vascular Nursing, ISSN 1062-0303, E-ISSN 1532-6578, Vol. 36, no 2, p. 64-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    he aim of this study is to describe the experiences of critical care nurses (CCNs) when performing successful peripheral intravenous catheterization (PIVC) on adult inpatients in difficult situations. This study uses a descriptive design with a qualitative approach. Semistructured interviews were given to CCNs (n = 22) at a general central county hospital in northern Sweden. The interview text was analyzed with qualitative thematic content analysis. Three themes emerged: “releasing time and creating peace,” “feeling self-confidence in the role of expert nurse,” and “technical interventions promoting success.” CCNs stated that apart from experience, releasing enough time is the most crucial factor for a successful PIVC. They emphasized the importance of identifying the kinds of difficulties that may occur during the procedure, for example, fragile or/and invisible veins. CCNs explained that compared to when they were newly graduated, the difference in their approach nowadays has changed to using their hands more than their eyes and that they feel comfortable with bodily palpations. To further optimize PIVC performing skills, continued possibilities to train and learn in hospital settings are necessary, even after formal education has been completed.

    Problems associated with performance of peripheral intravenous catheterization in relation to working experience2018In: Journal of Vascular Nursing, ISSN 1062-0303, E-ISSN 1532-6578, Vol. 36, no 4, p. 196-202Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to explore general registered nurses’ (RNs) assessments of problems associated with difficult peripheral intravenous catheterization (PIVC) depending on their years of working experience, that is, those who had worked 3 years or less and those who had worked more than 3 years. The design was a quantitative, nonexperimental, descriptive, and analytic survey. The participating RNs (n = 83) were divided into two groups according to the length of their working experience, and the analysis was performed using the SPSS, version 24, software. The RNs also had the opportunity to answer a free-text question related to the aim. The results showed that less experienced RNs assessed to a significantly higher extent that they lacked time, experience, and ability and that there was no blood return; however, they assessed that the peripheral venous catheters were in the vein. If critical care nurses had been requested for support earlier, this request was seen as a reason not to try PIVC at all because critical care nurses were assessed as more experienced and skilled. To develop the kind of effective problem-solving and clinical reasoning needed for practice, a supportive setting must be created throughout nursing education as well as after graduation. Further research should focus on the education needs associated with PIVC and seek to understand to what extent learning in clinical skill simulation laboratories is transferred to actions in the clinical setting.
