What's usually prescribed to lessen a patient from vomiting? Is it D5, D51/2NS, or NS?
I overheard my co worker talk to the doctor that the patient is still on "D5" (not sure if he meant D5 or D51/2NS) & that the pt has been vomiting... and the doctor sort of got upset because pt was supposed to be on NS.
I understand the idea behind hypotonic, hypertonic, and isotonic solutions... but what's the patho behind it when it involves vomiting?
Thanks for any response!
