It works!

  1. I just wanted to thank the person that posted the tip to break an ammonia ampule to help a patient void. Well yesterday I had a post partum patient that could not void. I sat her on the toilet and broke an ampule in the pilgrim's cap under her and woohoo!! she voided!!! Don't know how or why it works but it worked. Thanks! Saved me and her an in and out cath!
