Can you give vasopressors via a peripheral IV to save a life before a central line is inserted…YES WE CAN!!

In critically ill patients, with hemodynamic instability, vasopressor infusion through a proximal PIV (antecubital fossa or external jugular vein), for <4hours of duration is unlikely to result in tissue injury and will reduce the time it takes to achieve hemodynamic stability.
