1.When a MD writes an order, say bolus 1 liter of NS....that means wide open right? The problem is our IVF are on a pump...so do I take the tube off the pump and let it run wide open by gravity? and if I do that the fluid sometimes does not run very fast. If I bolus with a pump how much do I set the pump for?
2. If a MD writes a order to bolus heparin at X units...how do I do that?
These may seem like bone head questions...if so...then so be it.
Thank you all for your help....this site is a great resource.
