TOTW: D10 Administration
Posted on: February 4th, 2022
D10 can be given EITHER by IV slow push, or infusion. Consider available equipment, patient condition and competing treatment priorities when choosing your management strategy.
For example: If your patient is obtunded, you may consider giving it via IV push. If the patient is confused but alert (and you have available resources), you may consider giving it via infusion. The method of D10 delivery is a clinical judgment decision.
