NCLEX Review: Mixing Insulin
For this NCLEX exam review video, we will be talking about some of the appropriate measures to take when mixing insulin. You want to make sure you have a subcutaneous syringe and remember that insulin is dosed in units. Listen in as we go over the four steps to follow when drawing up insulin: mix the insulin, prepare the syringe, inject air into the insulin and draw up the desired dose of insulin. Keep in mind for the NCLEX test that these steps are the same whether you are drawing up cloudy or clear insulin.
