Question CCS - Fluid Bolus versus Continuous

If somebody comes in septic or in a hypotensive shock or a similar situation in real life we would proceed with a fluid bolus (or several) and then NS IV cont.
Why does UW NEVER recommend a fluid bolus?! It's always NS IV continuous!

good question dr_mhm, but I guess CCS software is such that its better to give continuous....though you can give one time and then continuous which will solve your purpose...

Actually, I found in the help section of the Primum software that you can't give boluses, just do IV continuous.

By the way doc.mav, your inbox is full - it doesn't accept more messages!
