    A Novel Approach for the Administration of Medications and Fluids in Emergency Scenarios and Settings.
    J Vis Exp 2016 Nov 9(117). Epub 2016 Nov 9.
    Department of Emergency Medicine, Advocate Christ Medical Center;
    The available routes of administration commonly used for medications and fluids in the acute care setting are generally limited to oral, intravenous, or intraosseous routes, but in many patients, particularly in the emergency or critical care settings, these routes are often unavailable or time-consuming to access. A novel device is now available that offers an easy route for administration of medications or fluids via rectal mucosal absorption (also referred to as proctoclysis in the case of fluid administration and subsequent absorption). Although originally intended for the palliative care market, the utility of this device in the emergency setting has recently been described. Read More
