Our medical director seems to think that they are as effective. I have no idea what he bases that on. He is also one of the flight program MDs and they have trying very hard to eliminate as many infusions impossible as possible due to space issues. So if flight gets it, we get it, but in this case we lost since I think they have IVP NTG and we do not.Huh, any specific reason? We're talking about ditching the paste since its rarely used and we have it in tab, spray, drip and push dose
Also, I've always tended to give nitro to hypertensive STEMIs because that just seemed like a good idea and that's what I was taught...but I can't find a whole ton to back that up?
