    We aren't learning all our tubes at once. NG was earlier, IV will be next semester (but you have lumens with catheters too, and that was in the elimination chapter a few weeks ago...).

    Nope. Sorry... how about the dorsogluteal IM z track? That is for tomorrow. I get a big ol' needle in the butt full of saline from a student who has never stuck anyone before. I can hardly wait.

    Break down the name of the tube and it'll tell you what it's for.
