Today in the ER I assisted with a patient who was extremely diaphoretic. After my coworker inserted an IV into the patients hand. They called me over for assistance as they were unable to apply any type of dressing. The patient was extremely diaphoretic. After trying Tegaderm and various types of tape. We were unsuccessful at securing the IV site. After much trial and error, I was finally able to secure the IV site by shaving the IV site, using a shield barrier prep, alcohol swabs, Mastisol, Steri-Strips, and Tegaderm. Does anybody have any other easier ideas as to what to do in the case of an extremely diaphoretic patient?
