how do you give it? I have always worked with another rn (so they could add a fast flush in addition to the ns hanging wide open) and had the patient on the crash cart monitor. I like to have the doc at the bedside too.
Last night I saw someone give it for svt in a stable patient with a rate in the 180s with no fluids and all by himself. I came in when he yelled for help as her rate jumped to the 270s.
I am pretty conservative safety wise but it surprised me enough to wonder how others cardiovert (chemically). What do you do?
