I was curious who uses colace in the PED to assist with cerumen impaction? The guidelines I've read say 1 ml on affected side, leave cotton in ear, reassess in 20-30 min.
-Do any of you use this?
-If so, do you keep it stocked inside your ED? (I think waiting for our pharmacy to deliver it to us in the ED would add too much time to an otherwise straight-forward visit.)
Thanks for your feedback,
