oral cholecystography special care check for iodine allergies, take radioactive tablets night before, NPO after midnight
HIDA scan special care and liver scan NPO POST test- increase fluids
liver biopsy special care informed consent, make sure Pt, PTT and bleeding times assess ahead of time, NPO, baseline vitals, POST test- bandage applied and lie on rt. side, bed rest, monitor for bleeding
Lab tests for GI serum bilirubin, liver enzymes, serum protein, serum ammonia, serum amylase, serum lipase
temporary therapeutic measures nasogastric and nasoenteric tubes
long-term therapeutic measures gastrostomy and jejunostomy
purposes of therepuetic GI intubation decompression, obtain gastric secretions, relieve obstructions, gavage (feeding), lavage(pumping), promote healing after GI surgery
tube feedings use what type of nutrition commercially prepared formulas such as ensure--doctor determines amount and type
