Hi, I am just wondering if anyone has experienced giving 20 units of oxytocin IM or have any information about it. I am being trained in labour and delivery and there was miscommunication between my preceptor and myself and the patient ended up getting 20iu of oxytocin IM instead of 10iu IM. It was at the end of shift so I’be just been worried about what could happen. 
Thanks in advance
