How many minutes are you suppose to push a 23.4%NaCl (10cc) over. I haven't given any in a long time and now the clinic that I am at has started giving them. I have been use to using the Na pumps for several years.

Hi. I usually divide the dose into 2 doses of 5cc 30 minutes apart. I take about a minute to push it.

Also something you might try if the patient is having trouble with cramping is a 10 cc Bolus of D50. Of course make sure the patient isnt diabetic. The hypertonic solution tends to make them very thirsty as you can imagine and they tend to come in with more excess fluid the next treatment at least that is what we have seen in our clinic.
