"Push" Rocephin Instead of the Usual Drip Method?

In this video, long-time Lyme patient Barbara Arnold (who is now almost completely recovered) explains how she has managed to live with doing over three years of IV Rocephin (Ceftriaxone) without using an IV pole, tubing and saline bags. She developed the technique on her own, partly to reduce her out-of-pocket costs. I thought it was worth doing a little interview with her in which she explains and demonstrates how she does it. (We will post Part 2, where Barbara shows how to actually do the infusion after the syringes are filled.)

CAUTION: Please note that pushing a typical 2G dose of Rocephin should be done in no shorter than 45 minutes, according to one LLMD, who told me it could cause serious harm to the kidneys. So if you do this technique of pushing Rocephin, you might be well advised to mind the clock.
