Push Dose Pressor Labels/Orders

During a slower emerg shift on Christmas day 2015, I finally designed push dose pressor labels and sticker orders/instructions for mixing that work with the labels in our emergency department. I use these for resuscitations and teaching.

The source is from Scott Weingart at emcrit.org where there is a blog post on epinephrine and phenylephrine as IV bolus dose pressors for transient hypotension during sedation or peri-intubation or as a bridge to pressor infusions with printable mixing instructions.

Feel free to download the word template for epinephrine and phenylephrine push dose labels and orders as stickers (version 1) (version 2) and adapt as you wish.
