I was pushed in to OR for an outpatient surgery with 1 IV line and out with 2 IV lines. My anesthesiologist gave me many Ghirardelli’s caramel milk chocolates & ask me to eat all as soon as I woke up without ever explaining reason for adding 2nd IV?

In brief: 2nd IV

Sometimes is routine during general anesthesia, as one might get blocked or fail, so another would be available, doesn't denote anything in particular, best wishes
