    Ohhh ok....see the questions weren't specific, so I could not gauge that the scenarios were in the postpartum period, and I couldn't tell that the MDI was with a spacer because it didn't specify that in the question. Also, I have asthma...never have I pressed the medication first, then put the spacer in my mouth, and I wasn't taught that in nursing school, either....I just looked up the technique in my Taylor's skills book just to make sure I hadn't been doing it wrong all these years, and it says to press the cannister after the spacer has been placed in the mouth. I thank you so much for your questions because they are helping a lot, and I am sorry if I seem like I am complaining, but I just want to be clear about stuff in case I do see it on the NCLEX.

    Heparin is best given in high doses follow by smaller daily doses. Because the pt in the question is experiencing internal bleeding and heparin should be given quickly to increase the blood coagulation and later can be given in smaller doses daily.
    this dosing is right but I would question this order (uness they have DIC). Heparin is an anticoagulant, uncontrolled bleeding is a contraindication. hth! This has been an awesome thread!!!
