I was recently asked by a local hospital for protocols in reference to
Venous/arterial/Carotid exams. I have a "STAT" venous algorithm that I
used to use years ago but had nothing to offer in the way of arterial and
carotid. (I REPEAT, I HAVE A VENOUS ALGORITHM:):)) it seems their ER
docs are having a C.Y.A. field day with ordering carotids for "lt eye
tic x 10 minutes" or arterials for "patella tenderness". they would like
something to present to the head honchos to stop some unnecessary call
backs. Do these protocols exist???? help please. THANKS in advance!
fax to me at (407)629-2580 or post on the net. Thanks again.
