We recently had a request to compound an epinephrine drip for anaphylaxis and came across a potential safety issue with ordering. The recommended concentration for anaphylaxis is 1 mcg/ml. We have the standard concentrations of 20 mcg/ml and 40 mcg/ml built into Epic. This resulted in considerable manipulation and work-around by the pharmacist in order to correctly enter an order for the 1 mcg/ml drip.
Has anyone come across this issue, and how did you improve safety for future orders?
