    We also add 100mg thiamine, and give it over an hour.

    Alcohol decreases appetite, so alcoholics tend towards malnutrition. Problem here is if they're Thiamine deficient they can get "Wernicke's encephalopathy." It's not common, but costs hospitals and doctors a lot if a recent patient comes down with it, and cheap to avoid.
    The patients (self propelled toxic waste dumps) getting banana bags are used to fluid boluses orally, so rate isn't critical unless there are other concerns.
    I know you're probably screaming "TMI, TMI" by now so I'll shut my fingers up.
