The first COW-nundrum contest was held October 3-23, 2016. We received 41 questions from 23 nurses in many different areas!

Here are some examples of questions received:

  1. What is the correct use of ice packs as external cooling method for fever management of inpatient adult patients on a general medicine unit?
  2. Are seizure pads really beneficial? If yes, under what circumstances?
  3. How many times should a patient be "poked" for an IV or lab before other options like VAT, anesthesia or OR placement preoperatively are considered?
