In view thereof, this paper is thus divided into the following sections: (1) description, (2) feelings, (3) evaluation, (4) analysis, (5) conclusion and (6) action plan.
Description A sixty year old woman was recently operated because of a heart disease.
Aside from the physical condition of the patient, my colleague and I also focused on her physiological and psychological conditions.
Basically, upon close examination of the patient, we did not find anything wrong as regards her physiological ..Ely (2008) suggest that the purpose of reflection in nursing practice is to develop awareness of how and what can be learned from new experiences.
The paradox is averted by recognizing that the identity of the particles does not......The Use Of Gibbs Cycle Of Reflection Introduction It is the primary goal of this paper to offer an extensive analysis of at least two core dimensions, Level 2 from the Knowledge and Skills Framework in the post-operative recovery care unit in the NHS Trust.
This reflective essay focuses on the use of Gibbs Cycle of Reflection in order to properly analyse the practice of the post-operative recovery care unit in the NHS Trust.Aside from merely checking the vital signs of the patient, my colleague and I also assessed the level of consciousness of the patient.In conducting this test, we were able to determine that the patient was relatively conscious and we must only wait for a longer time before her vital signs begin to normalize.This was continued on until the woman was awake and has begun eating and drinking. Remarkable improvement was seen from the patient during the first two hours.Her vital signs continue to rise significantly every thirty minutes.After the second hour, we monitored her hourly and it was shown that her vital signs continue to rise towards normalcy. However, she was not ready to start eating and drinking anything.It was only two hours after she woke up that she expressed thirst and was given a drink.When I first conducted this, we noticed that whilst the female displayed good vital signs, we were not however sure as regards the normalcy thereof.Because of this, we had to undergo other tests so as to ensure that the operation was indeed successful.A Brief Introduction of Gibbs Paradox:- In statistical mechanics, a simple derivation of the entropy of an ideal gas based on the Boltzmann distribution yields an expression for the entropy which is not extensive (is not proportional to the amount of gas in question).This leads to an apparent paradox known as the Gibbs paradox, allowing, for instance, the entropy of closed systems to decrease, violating the second law of thermodynamics.
