  1. This small ICU doc uses, (almost exclusively) 1mg to 4mg iv doses prn of ativan and morphine for vent sedation. No drips are used. Do any other ICU's do this? Are there any advantages to this? Septic patients with "iffy" blood pressures don't seem to like the morphine too well.

    The doc never mentioned which port was actually used.

    air bolus in swan gantz

    Our anesthetist gently pointed out one of our nurses had been injecting air into the wrong lumen during the PAC insertion, which prevented the different waveforms from showing up. No harm occurred; however, could the insertion of air in the wrong port caused an embolism?
