malformalady:

Acute bullous eruption in a patient with Compartment Syndrome due to intravenous infiltration. IV infiltration occurs when an IV fluid/medication accidentally enters the surrounding tissue rather than the vein.


And this is why you always continue to check the IV site.

  • Dispatch: ______ Ambulance 2, you're responding. Your pt is 32 weeks, was having contractions every 3 minutes... I've lost contact but the line is still open, may be unresponsive.
  • Ambulance Co: Received, thank you.
  • Ambulance Co *not realizing his mic is on*: Holy shit, brother, grab the OB kit and hold it tight. Actually, no, just fucking grab everything. All of it.
  • Dispatch: ______ Ambulance 2, check for an open mic.
  • Ambulance Co.: Oh sh-- *static*

When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol or nicotine — an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves you craving more.
