Veterinary Nursing Care Plans

This book offers a broad overview of the theory and practice of care planning in veterinary nursing, answering three key questions: What are nursing care plans? Why should nursing care plans be used in practice? How should nursing care plans be used in practice? It provides basic definitions and explanations which will be useful to those unfamiliar with nursing care plans. For those veterinary nurses and technicians who are using nursing care plans, the content stimulates debate and discussion, by covering some of the philosophical and theoretical aspects of nursing and drawing comparisons and contrasts between the veterinary and human nursing roles and contexts. There is a pressing need for veterinary nurses to establish themselves as professionals and develop their unique role within the veterinary care team. Nursing care plans are a core tool to support that development. ? It is hoped that veterinary nurses may borrow tools from the pages of this book or use it as a resource design their unique care plans: either way, this practical guide will support the application of care planning, no matter the species of the animal kingdom for whom you are caring.

Adsorption optischer Aufheller aus Waschmitteln an Tonmineralen und tonorganischen Komplexen

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Umweltwissenschaften, Note: 1,5, Universitat Trier (Abteilung Bodenkunde), 77 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: DAS1 und DSBP sind die dominanten optischen Aufheller in Waschmitteln. Daher gelangen betrachtliche Anteile in die Klaranlage, wo eine starke Adsorption an den Klarschlamm erfolgt. Aufgrund der Verwendung von Klarschlamm als landwirtschaftlicher Dunger werden optische Aufheller in Boden eingetragen. Bisher existieren jedoch kaum Untersuchungen uber das Adsorptionsverhalten der Aufheller an Bodenbestandteilen. Um diese Wissenslucke zu schliessen, entstand meine Diplomarbeit mit dem Ziel, DAS1 und DSBP hinsichtlich ihrer Adsorption an Na-, Ca- und Fe-Montmorillonit, an Na- und Ca-Montmorillonit-Polysaccharidkomplexen (= Tonpolymerkomplexe, als Simulation der in natura mit mikrobiellen Polymeren belegten Tonmineralen) sowie an Na- und Ca-Montmorillonit-Huminsaurekomplexen (Simulation der Ton-Humuskomplexe) zu untersuchen. Die Versuche ergaben eine starke Adsorption von DAS1 an Ca- und Fe-Montmorillonit und an Ca-Montmorillonit-Polysaccharidkomplexen. Geringer, aber immer noch deutlich, war die Adsorption von DAS1 an Na-Montmorillonit-Polysaccharidkomplexe sowie von DSBP an Fe-Montmorillonit. Keine Bindung konnte mit DSBP an Na- und Ca-Montmorillonit, an alle Na- und Ca-Montmorillonit-Polysaccharidkomplexe sowie an Na- und Ca-Montmorillonit-Huminsaurekomplexe erzielt werden. Ebenso konnte keine Adsorption von DAS1 an Na-Montmorillonit und an Tonhuminsaurekomplexe nachgewiesen werden. Die z.T. fehlgeschlagene Sorption ist auf den abstossenden Effekt der negativ geladenen Tonminerale zuruckzufuhren. Durch die Ausbildung von Kationbrucken konnte diese Barriere jedoch uberwunden werden. Die Ergebnisse verdeutlichen diesen Zusammenhang: Die Adsorption nahm bei Montmorillonit mit steigender Ladung der austauschbaren Kationen in der Reihenfolge Na+
