End-of-life care with the heart failure patient in home health: a case study

, : End-of-life care with the heart failure patient in home health: a case study. Journal of Infusion Nursing 28(6): 393-398

The diagnosis of congestive heart failure accounts for a large proportion of hospital admissions and multiple readmissions over the course of the disease. During the end stage of their disease process, patients often are prescribed many complex medications such as inotropic infusion therapy. For a patient to receive an intravenous medication at home, there must be a collaborative approach between nurse, family, patient, and physician. This palliative approach can result in decreased hospital admissions and an improved quality of life for patients with end-stage congestive heart failure.

After sublethal (6 Gy) whole-body irradiationa, the C57BL/Ba (Thy-1.1) murine thymus regenerated in two waves, on days 3-10 and 25-32, separated by a severe relapse. The second phase of depletion-reconstitution reproduced the first one, in a less...
