Does any nurses have any patients that do the hot style yoga and/or Bikram Yoga?
I am helping out in the PD dept. this week and the new pt. I'm training had been practicing yoga before his failed transplant and fell ill.
Since I am a yogi myself, I was thrilled he wants to continue in his practice, but also worried about infection, catheter migrating, and or dehydration.
I recommended exit site care immediately after, eliminating the "sit-up"and staying well hydrated, He has a good urine output.
I will take any advice if anyone has patients who participate in this style of exercise. I'm thrilled he is motivated to be active but very concerned ...
