So.....our protocol requires 2 PIVs for pts on ENDOTOOL. I’ve gotten pts from L&D with insulin, NS0.9 and D545 all in one PIV. I thought Insulin was Only compatible with NS?

So it sounds like your question is less about ENDOTOOL, and more about what maintenance fluids are compatible with an insulin gtt?
