Lightning rounds #8: Five things you’re getting wrong

Bryan’s off this week, so Brandon flies solo to explain five wrong-headed notions that many people believe without thinking about them.

  1. Are diuretic infusions more effective than intermittent boluses?
  2. Are antipsychotic (neuroleptic) agents a good treatment for ICU delirium?
  3. Is pressure control or volume control a better form of assist control?
  4. Does renal failure cause chronically elevated troponin levels due to impaired troponin clearance?
  5. If a patient squeezes your hand, does that mean they heard and followed your command?
