It's covered as to maintain an Insulin drip. I know of NO EMS that has such protocols other than to do such. Do you have a refigerator in the back of your units to store it? Regular Insulin is the only IV Insulin and it is fast acting, usually requires refrigeration. I would NEVER administer without a lab base line value.

Correct, poor wording on my part. We are allowed to maintain Insulin drips on IFT's. It's actually a fairly new protocol to us, up until 3 months ago we had to take a nurse with us that could adjust the drip.
