What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing?

Traveling with Diabetes:childrenwithdiabetes:"Traveling with diabetes involves extra preparation and planning. With proper care, however, you should be able to go anywhere in the world. Here are some guidelines to follow when you're traveling: Always carry your diabetes supplies with you. When going through security, don't worry about X-ray effects on your your meter or your insulin. If you have any concern, ask to have your meter hand-inspected. If you're traveling with someone else, have them carry duplicate supplies, just in case."
http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/d_0n_600.htm

TRAVELING WITH DIABETES SUPPLIES:American diabetes association:"Make sure your insulin vials, insulin pens, jet injectors and insulin pump are accompanied by a professionally printed pharmaceutical label identifying the medication (insulin). Since the prescription label is usually on the outside of the box containing the vial of insulin or pens, it is recommended that passengers refrain from discarding their insulin box and come prepared with their insulin in its original pharmaceutically labeled box."
http://www.diabetes.org/main/community/advocacy/travel.jsp

Your Traveling Medical Record:diabetesmonitor:"Many people have their medical records scattered in different offices: general medical care here, diabetes records there, hospital reports somewhere else. Since you never can predict which of these records might be important to help with your care during a trip away from home, it'd be wise to keep a consolidated condensed version of all this information with you when traveling. Here's how to do it:"
http://www.diabetesmonitor.com/tmr.htm

Diving's loosened up for people with diabetes:diabetesmonitor:"Perhaps you can let the diabetics know that the Scuba Diving Industry has loosened up as far as allowing diabetics to participate. I as PADI Open Water Diving Instructor can now teach classes to diabetics leading to certification. My daughter can now go to professional status if she wants to and become an instructor. Divers Alert Network is presently conducting studies in the Bahamas and starting in August will take the study to the Cozumel area. Divers participating must be Insulin dependant. I am trying to round up enough people interested in learning to dive and willing to take a Cozumel trip to participate in study. The certification dives will be free if trip is booked with me. Let's Go Diving!"
http://www.diabetesmonitor.com/diving.htm

Traveling with diabetes:postgradmed:"The very first step in planning an extended trip is to schedule an office visit with your doctor. Ideally, this should be done 4 to 6 weeks before departure so you have time to make any changes needed and see how they work before you leave. Speak with your diabetes educator or dietitian if you have specific questions about diet, exercise, or signs and symptoms of high or low blood glucose. Travel medicine clinics are very helpful if you are going to a place where touring might be more hazardous than normal."
http://www.postgradmed.com/issues/1999/02_99/pn_diabetes.htm

Recommendations to follow to ensure you have a safe trip when traveling with diabetes:cheshire-med:"For many people, traveling is one of the simple pleasures of life. Whether it be traveling to far off lands or visiting friends and neighbors, the sight and sounds of new places can be a refreshing change from the in and outs of daily life. For the person with diabetes this can appear to pose a problem by upsetting the "normal routine." However, with adequate planning, you can manage your diabetes as well on vacation as you do at home."
http://www.cheshire-med.com/services/dietary/nutrinew/traveldiab.html

For All People with Diabetes:umassmed:"Have required vaccinations weeks ahead of your departure time to avoid reactions that might disturb your blood sugar balance while away from home. When planning a trip to areas where English is not the principal language, try to learn how to say: "I have diabetes; please get me to a doctor." and "Sugar or juice, please," in the language of each country you plan to visit. Choose hotels carefully. Know what facilities are offered what services are available. Always wear or carry some form of medical identification. A tag, bracelet, or necklace with the medical emblem is best. If you take oral medications for diabetes, carry enough for the entire trip. You may have trouble getting your prescription filled in a foreign country."
http://www.umassmed.edu/diabeteshandbook/chap14.htm

You can have a full life full of travel:lifescan:"Although living with diabetes can pose a number of challenges, as long as it is managed conscientiously, most people with the disease can lead full lives. And that includes following where their hearts lead. In most instances, all it takes to make traveling pleasurable and reasonably worry-free is a bit of thought and careful planning."
http://www.lifescan.com/care/essentials/travel_diabetes.html

Information to know when traveling with diabetes:diabetic-lifestyle:"Have a list of hospitals in the cities that you will visit. These can be found through the ADA here in the US or the International Diabetes Federation in Brussels, Belium. To find out a list of English-speaking foreign physicians you can contact the International Association for Medical Assistance to Travelers in Lewiston, NY. Make sure you have a medical ID bracelet or necklace. Don't remove it. Carry a note written on your physician's prescription pad stating that you have diabetes and are carrying syringes and insulin for that reason."
http://www.diabetic-lifestyle.com/articles/dec00_whats_1.htm

Cruising with diabetes:diabetes.about.com:"We love to cruise and have done so many times, but the food on a cruise ship has always been a concern with dozens of feedings a day. We all have only so much will power to insure eating only what's allowed on our meal plans. But take notice, cruise lines are finally getting the message from repeat passengers, particularly health and fitness oriented clientele, and are lightening up in their galleys. Most cruise lines now use the American Heart Associations's recommendations as their guide to produce menu items that get less than 30 percent of their calories from fat."
http://diabetes.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.diabetic-lifestyle.com%2Farticles%2Fjul99_trave_1.htm

Traveling Without Trauma: Tips for Travelers with Diabetes:macneal.com:"Crossing time-zones can require insulin adjustments. East-to-west flights lengthen the day and may require that you take more insulin. West-to-east flights shorten the day and require that you decrease intermediate insulin by the amount equal to the percentage of the day lost. For instance, a six-hour time loss is 25% of the day and would require a 25% decrease in NPH or Lente insulin. Your diabetes management team can help you chart your insulin requirements. Always carry twice as much insulin as you normally use. Keep it with you. Don't risk losing it in a checked bag. Insulin should be stored in moderate temperatures (40' to 86'). Use an insulated container with ice or a chemical cool pack or use a special insulin traveling kit available at many drug stores."
