What Happens If You Hit A Vein Injecting For Diabetes
Alcohol: Is a strong sclerosing agent, namely it will close the veins. It is used by some for what is called a-v malformations. It is dangerous as it can cause slough of skin. Associated with severe pain and watch for intoxication. ...Read more
Not much: There is transient local bleeding that looks like a bruise, and this resolves in time. The vein heals up and, if no longer competent, nearby veins route the blood just fine. Use a cold compress in the first few hours. ...Read more
Maybe: If you have thrombophlebitis, a clot could go directly to the lung causing a life threatening pulmonary embolism. But if there is a congenital hole within the heart, such as patent foramen ovale, the embolism can be paroxysmal and go to brain, causing a stroke. Anti-coagulation can be protective in these circumstances. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Paradoxical stroke: As dr. Santin said, it is possible but fairly rare. Although 25-30% of the population has the septal defect in their heart that he mentioned, it rarely causes trouble when it is there. As a result, we don't routinely look for it, unless someone has had a stroke and, especially, if they are young and don't have other risk factors for having had a stroke. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have MD draw blood.: There are many options for drawing blood if it cannot be taken from the routine areas. This occurs periodically with children, with adults with no veins and in a trauma setting. The options would be to hydrate and warm the person and re-evaluate. Next try using a vein lite or syris head light to find the veins followed by ultrasound identification of the subclavian vein or a femoral vein stick. ...Read more

I just injected 40 units of lantus (insulin glargine). It bled a decent drop until I pressed the area with my boxers. How can you tell if you inject into a vein?
Don't Worry: This is an old concern & particularly with rapid insulin. With insulin pens & small needles it is hard to hit a large vein. You most likely hit a venule, a very small branch of a vein, & the needle will actually pass through it. The insulin will deposit behind the vein the Lantus (insulin glargine) slowly release, but you will bleed a little. If Lantus (insulin glargine) is in a venule it will likely clot & the Lantus (insulin glargine) work normally. ...Read more
How long do you have before you step on a nail or something to get a tetanus shot, what if you can't get one for a few hours after the incident ?
Varies: We encourage the injection within 24-48 hours.Good wound cleaning as soon as possible after the injury helps prevent a wound infection by any germ with or without tetanus spores that may be there. If you've had the primary series and your last booster was within 10 years, the shot is optional but a good decision because you can boost your protection for another decade. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What do you suggest if i've been wondering if it was possible that a general surgeon could inject a patient with intravenous chemotherapy?
Possible: The use of chemotherapy is a complicated process, and while it is possible that a general surgeon can order and administer it, the standard of care would be for an oncologist to order it and administration to be done in a hospital or outpatient cancer center. In situations where those services don't exist, a properly trained and interested physician can perform this. ...Read more
Hi! if a person is diabetic n having severe leg pain , then is it related to diabetes? If yes please tell me what should be done.
What do you suggest if i would like to know if someone has hyperglycemia, and gets a hemodialysis, is the machine gonna clear this high glucose?
Glucose transport: Glucose (G) has a molecular mass of 180.2 and can diffuse across a hemodialyzer membrane. So if there is no glucose in the dialysate (D), there will a flux of G from the patient to the D. If there is G in the D, the concentration is 200 mg/dl. If the patient's glucose is > 200, glucose will flux from the D to the patient, if it's ...Read more
What happens if you give 10 units of blood to a bleeding aneurysm what should you be concerned about?
Could you tell me what happens when you forget to inject insulin for a person with type one diabetes?
Blood sugar rises: The first thing that happens especially if food is eaten is that the blood sugar rises. Without Insulin the body cannot put that sugar into cells. Eventually ketones from fat breakdown develop. You can become quite ill if enough doses are missed. Also, missed doses will affect your a1c. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When a person has a left side Istemic stroke, how detrimental is it to recovery if they do not get therapy in the first month? Thank you
Pretty bad... get PT: Studies have shown that the sooner after a stroke that you start physical therapy, the better, more, & faster you recover. Waiting a month after a stroke allows muscles to weaken & waste away, so in general, doctors recommend starting range of motion within 1 week, & intense physical therapy within about 2 weeks after a stroke. Talk to your doctor / physiatrist about your condition. ...Read more
