    heparin is given in an iv solution of d5w, ns, 1/2ns or another solution of the physician's choosing. see table of commonly used iv solutions.doc for a list of the most commonly used iv solutions.

    If they have a history of HIT (heparin induced thrombocytopenia), argatroban can be used instead of heparin.
