Someone I know got a ivi infusion with 100000u of heparin in 24 hours it was a 1000ml drip what can go wrong how do we prevent any side effects
Unless you're his medical personal you do nothing. Do you know how much he was supposed to get? Protamine sulfate will neutralize the heparin. The biggest problem is bleeding of course. As a former nursing supervisor I would be jumping up and down demanding answers to questions like who ordered it, who mixed it and who hung it.
