Hello all, I co-wrote a policy awhile back on management of extravasation and infiltration. Lynn Hadaway helped along the way.
I assumed that it was written for PVC events and CVC events, while the policy does not differentiate.
Are they treated differently?
Our pharmacist who co-wrote it states it only applies to PVCs and if there is a rare CVC event the policy should read" call the pharmacist for intervention."
I have no experience at all with CVC infiltration or extravasation.
