Discussion #2 Normal Saline vs Ringers Lactate Debate
Just two of numerous articles on the debate!
For this weeks discussion review literature on normal saline and ringers lactate. It is interesting to note that organizations can differ in their protocols. Focusing on a preoperative patient, answer the following:
1) Name 2 medical conditions that would be contradictive to a patient receiving Normal Saline.
2) Name 2 medical conditions that would be contradictive to a patient receiving Ringers Lactate.
3) Endoscopy and ECT therapy procedures – identify preference of IV solution for procedures at your organization and why. If you do not have information on these procedures please respond to a student response on their organizations specifics!
Table format is acceptable.
