I just want to know the opinion of my collegues about a patient i had encountered. I had patient with Hemoglobin count of 1.52g/dl, looks very pale, weak and emaciated. He is afebrile and with initial BP of 90/50. The resident ordered 500mL of Normal Saline, 1gm of Ampicillin and and oxygen. Blood is not available in blood bank and has to take it in another hospital. Transport of the blood will take 5 hours. On the 5 hour duration, the doctor did not order anything. I asked if IV fluid is needed but he replied the patient is on heart failure and only blood is needed for him to recover.
I just wanted to ask if in case like this, what should be the proper treatment for patient? thanks.
