Heparin Infusion + bleeding

Posted

Hello,

Have you guys ever experienced a patient receiving a continous heparin drip then the doctor told you yo remove the inter-jugular central line? Then when you did, the bleeding won't stop despite of pressure? It was horrific. But luckily bleeding stopped. Guess I won't be removing central lines if with Heparin drip otherwise stop it first or pause it. ☺️
