  3. Can you "explode" from CDiff
    Yep, scrotal edema....3rd spacing, seen it too many times to count. I have always gently elevated the area with a few folded pillowcases placed under the scrotum. Sounds like this poor guy is septic.

    By the way, no, the BRN does not post NCLEX results. You will have to wait for those to arrive in the mail.

  16. Fentanyl/Versed on locked pumps ?
    Timothy, it looks as though that standard of yours may not be the actual standard of care. I've been in quite a few ICU's and have never seen fentanyl or versed drips locked. I've not been...

  18. patients who LIE about their symptoms!
    I just noticed your edit. What I think you need to understand is that there is a HUGE difference between lying and denial. Is this more about people's personal choices (like smoking) when...
