Have been giving only 12mg doses for the four years (so go the guidelines) and that anecdotally makes for some more climatic changes.
Huh you are the first place I know of starting right off with 12.

My county has been starting off with 12 mg for at least the past 8 years.

Huh....I vaguely remember reading about it a long time ago, but pretty sure it's not common in an of the two regions I work in. Definitely gonna be looking more into it.

Based on the adenosine discussion, I’m curious how many providers load the adenosine into a 10 ML flush and push it that way versus the two syringe/stopcock method which seem to be so popular in initial training.

I have the blood 'Y' set for all of my patient's with the squeeze bulb thingy so I go closest port and squeeze the s**t out of the bulb. Also go straight to 12 mg.

I just pinch, push, and squeeze the bag.

For approx. 5 years our area did 12mg Adenosine only (12, 12, 12). I never had to give it. Last 2 years they went back to 6, 12 and 12 and I have had to give it 3 times since. 6mg has worked all 3 times for me. Prior to that 6 mg only worked once, I had to cardiovert * 2;
When I was BLS and driving a medic in I converted a lady in beautiful SVT when I hit Railroad tracks doing 50 that I didn't know were there. Medic told me great job fixing the lady and almost causing him to need to change pants.
