Chemotherapy, Blood Products, Bone marrow for transplant (some places require an MD/NP/or PA check for that one), Heparin drip, Narcotic infusions, diprovan, and titrated cardiac drips come to mind.

chemo, blood, PCA or other syringe pump narcs, insulin, and NMBA drips, here. We don't cosign sedation or narc drips in minibags, propofol, or pressors.
