Just when I think I have heard it all in medicine, something else comes along to amuse, amaze and trouble...such as: I have seen this twice in the last couple of months. A doctor orders an infusion, YES I SAID INFUSION, of caffeine in order to avoid those pesky headaches from withdrawal of caffeine. Both were given when someone was having surgery.
Okay....perhaps we should give a nicotine infusion, for smokers,an alcohol infusion, for alkies. Maybe a chocolate infusion....the possiblities are endless.
