Thanks, for the patient I specifically mentioned to begin with an IV S/L was established.
Tsk, I was referring to the post by 1-EMT-P where they indicated that they wouldn't use a lock:
1EMT-P, on 16 January 2010 - 08:37 AM, said:
"I am not a big fan of starting saline locks only on CVA patients, especially if they are neurosurgical patients & going to be going to the OR. I can tell you from experience that during neurosurgical cases for cerebral aneurysms that they will sometimes induce moderate hypothermia by rapidly infusing IV fluids for cerebral protection."
(I should have used "reply" on my other post, so that it would have made more sense - sorry)
So, I am still wondering: Like Herbie, I am wondering why a lock would prevent providing IV fluids once in hospital.
