Hi, I'm a fairly new nurse on a telemetry floor. I am not sure at the reasoning for some medications administered to a newly admitted pt.
The pt was ad,tired from ER for palpitations, sob, nausea, C/P.
Hx: afib, HTN, no hx of DM.
Labs: K+ 5.4, no other abnormal labs
Meds given in ED:
It was end of shift and my CN was already gone and the RN I asked for clarification with had no idea at the seeming counter productive med treatment. I go back tomorrow but was hoping someone could give me some clues. I'm not sure what I'm missing and of courses I feel like an idiot not beginning to see the sense of this.
Thanks for your time.
