I have been in nursing for 35 years and have worked in a variety of settings including hospice, long term care, med-surg, supervision, cath lab, ER, special procedures and critical care. I enjoy working as a float nurse because it gives me a variety of clinical experiences. I am also a CPR, ACLS, and PALS instructor at our local hospital.

Arterial blood pressure waveform
Sinus tachycardia. This patient had an arterial line and a CVP. The square wave test was done on the arterial line to evaluate the system dynamics. Two to three oscillations should follow a fast flush of the system.
