Here's a pointer; know where your IV lines are going, know if that vein is functional and patent, and know exactly what drug is in your hand and in that line.............before you add anything new. When you have the time, I.D. those lines.
When you’re reaching for the Lidocaine
The Epi or the Atropine,
The Propane or the Methane
Or maybe even Gasoline,
The Wheaties or the Captain Crunch
The chocolate cupcakes for your lunch.
Be sure you check your vital signs
And ensure the patency of lines,
Because in the midst of great surprise
If you’re not careful, someone dies.
