Rocuronium Standard Concentration

Good Morning,

Our health system currently uses the standard concentration for adult infusions recommended by the ASHP Standardize 4 Safety initiative of rocuronium 10 mg/mL (i.e., undiluted product). We have a physician that is questioning this concentration based on his interpretation of the package insert that states the diluted concentrations should be 0.5 mg/mL, 1 mg/mL, or 5 mg/mL. I am reaching out to see what other health systems are using as their standard concentration for adult infusions of rocuronium.

Thanks in advance!
