Heparin administration

  1. When giving heparin, is it best practice to add an "air cushion" such as lovenox uses after drawing it up? And are there any articles discussing this issue?

    There was a post about this not too long ago. The drug pamphlets said to administer the air cushion. And really, what would the negative side effects of giving it be?
