Today I had a pt who has been hiccuping for days on and off. Each time they last around 2-3 hours. The doc prescribed Haldol, but no matter what, they did not stop!! Anyone else ever had this happen? Any tips or tricks?
Hi there im a hospice nusre from Ga if the pt is a cardiac or COPDer often tracheal secretions swelling or any other disturbance can cause a sort of automatic clonic spasm of the diaphragm thorazine is what we use in our e kits, also clear the secretions if possible
