I dilute it with about 10 cc's of normal saline. Make sure if you're not using a central line, you make sure there's a good blood return as it's not recommended to be given IVP and give it over more than two minutes, never more than 25 mg. There are nurses who refuse to give it IV push because it's a vessicant. I've been giving it IV push for many years without any complications...yet.
