    Thanks for the replies guys. I still want to know, though. When do symptoms usually arise after giving phenergan iv push if they do? He was fine all shift (5 hours after). No burning or anything. In the clear? The reason I ask is because I was told IVP is very dangerous

    People loose limbs when it EXTRAVATES (sp) though an infiltrated IV, not when it is pushed through a patent line! If you think your IV is infiltrated do not push it, if you push it and then think it infiltrated then leave the IV catheter in place and call the pharmacy as you may be able to put another medication in to neutralize it.

    The burning, if they have it, will be as you are pushing it.

    Always examine the extremity with an IV line in it for edema or erythemia, and flush the line, even if there is NS or other maintenance fluid running to be sure the IV is still in the vein. If there is any questions as to whether or not it is or isn't, or if the patient complains of pain while pushing a NS flush do not push any medication through it.

    Here we go again....

    Please do not challenge this! Being a medic and a Nurse I can tell that the two professions are totally different with different ways of thinking! GO TO SCHOOL!!!

    188.00 a month or 47.00 a week with NO DEDUCTIBLE! I work for an ambulance company and I was recently offered a part time position on the IV team, and the benefits were terrible, which is why I did not take the position.

    Hi,

    I would NOT discuss money or pay at all during your interview, that is a BIG no no!! Wait until you have a job offer and then tactfully ask for more money!

    Hi all,

    I know some folks on here have the apple watch, and I just purchased a slightly used one off craigslist.

    I was just wondering if anyone has suggestions for good apps nursing, or non-nursing.

    Thanks,

    Please, the word is lose not loose.

    The rest of your post might be very informative but I can't get past this.

    Then don't read them, I really don't care!

    I would say KEEP IT!

    When I went to nursing from being a paramedic a lot of people said I should just let my paramedic license lapse (15K of schooling and 3 years of my life I will never get back), to which I said no way. It turns out I didn't care for my first nursing job and reverted back to playing paramedic full time, which I am still doing! So I say keep it just in case you do not like nursing!! My 0.02 cents!
