Oh, icky! Yuck! WEIRD feeling!!

  1. I put in my first intraosseous this morning. Man, that felt weird! I've taken PALS many times but in the beginning that was a doc-only job. Luckily I had the medic standing next to me talking me through it, 'cause baby legs are way different than chicken legs!

    I've only ever done it on the dolls (we don't even get chicken legs!) in PALS, and I've had 2 kids with them. I did take one out, and the feeling of that was enough to make me NEVER want to put one it. Kudos on doing that! (Is the kiddo okay?)

    Awesome! I didn't know they did this (or that I could do this!) wow. I wouldn't WANT to, mostly because I'm not in anyway a peds nurse and wouldn't handle this well.

    So what does it feel like? A crunch?

    Hate to sound stupid, here but what is an intraosseous?

    It's infusion directly into the bone marrow.

    Kiddo came in CPR in progress. Didn't make it, long down time.

    I've done chicken legs, but never a real one. In what way are they different?

    Just feels way weirder.
