Nurse-led management of i.v. fluorescein angiography.


Fluorescein angiography is undertaken to investigate the state of the circulation in diabetic eye disease, the commonest manifestation of which is diabetic retinopathy. Senior ophthalmic nurses, equipped with the appropriate skills and level of confidence, are now undertaking the procedure. In the eye centre at the Central Middlesex Hospital, a proactive nurse-led approach to the management of patients undergoing fluorescein angiography has had a significant impact on the outcomes of the procedure, and resulted in positive patient feedback.
