ACLS Drips & Drugs:
1. Amiodarone is now available in multi-dose vials (3mL, 6mL and 18mL) and we've made the switch so that we are less likely to be injured while snapping open the 3mL glass ampoules. The chart and "recipe cards" for the kits were adjusted to reflect that change.
2. The procainamide (Pronestyl) section on the chart was difficult to work with. The previous chart suggested using a syringe to inject 4mL per minute until the end points were met, requiring someone to manually inject the drug over time. The new chart describes a "kit" with a 20mg/min drip that is stopped with the end points are met. Not as much fuss.
3. All of our staff and physicians were really pleased with the original charts, but asked for the addition of a few drugs. Another page including verapamil, vasopressin, norepinephrine, labetolol and dobutamine was added as requested.
Again, the dose rates and calculations have been carefully checked by our pharmacy team, and it's all a go ... as of June 27, 2002. Laminated copies of the charts and "kit bags" containing the amiodarone and procainamide contents and instructions have been placed on every arrest cart throughout our hospital Alliance."
