The formation of gallstones is probably one of the major causes of blockage in the bile ducts. This also results in the formation of stones of different sizes in the gallbladder that create a blockage in the common bile duct present at the liver base. In the event the duct continues to stay blocked waste matter starts getting collected in the bloodstream as well as the system of the bile duct. You may also develop a severe infection known as ascending cholangitis, if bacteria accumulates with the blockage and retreats into the liver. If the gallstone stops between the gallbladder and the common bile duct, an infection known as cholecystitis could result.
When working in a facility, never skip or make up a number for blood pressure to add to patients chart. This could be deadly. If you are using a electronic cuff and get a reading that is way too high to be possible, or get a reading that is way out of range of the patients usual number, you will have to do it manually. If you are still getting an unusual reading it is time to get the hall nurse and they will do a BP check to see if your findings were correct. This can mean the difference between your patient living or dying. Keep this in mind while doing all your vital checks and be a responsible caregiver!
