i recently completed my acls cert. one of the questons really made me upset. the queston was
what is the best way to give epi in a code situation. the options were cent line, PIV, or ET tube, and something else stupid like sub q.
i put cent line because of the risk of a bad piv aswell as if you are giving someone epi i am assuming that the sys circulation isnt any good. the answer ended up being piv for the reason that i shouldnt wait for a cent line to be placed was what the instructor told me when i got this answer wrong.
my thoughts are who said that i didnt already have a cent. line. or that i was able to get a PIV on this pt.
