A bad IV start:
Then the next complication in this cascade of events is the INFILTRATON - that leakage of meds/fluids out of the vascular system and into the subcutaneous tissue - presenting a whole new problem AND a delay in treatment.
What are the infiltration problems:
cellulitis, necrosis, septicemia, even amputation - markedly affecting medical outcome.
How does a delay in delivery of that infusate/biological affect the medical outcome? Let's describe the IV administration of Pitocin during Labor & Delivery: Pitocin increases uterine contractions, speeding up delivery. But if the Pitocin is infiltrating into the subcutaneous tissue
How do we avoid all of that?
