Any adverse S/E with plasmalyte?

  1. 0 Has anyone ever encountered any unexplained Sxs in pts who've received plasmalyte during a procedure under MAC? The reason I ask is because earlier last week, a pt became SOB, febrile, vomited several times, and pulse ox dropped to 77% on RA after recovering from a procedure, but was completely fine beforehand. Pt was treated for possible infection with IV abx's, and admitted overnight. I found several sources that listed all of those Sxs as rare adverse S/E of plasmalyte. Has anything similar happened to anyone's pt?
