Organ Donation Patients

I am located in Kentucky and our state organ donation group, KODA, has a paper they provide to nurses with "orders" for the organ donor to receive once care is turned over to the KODA team. This paper order has IV levothyroxine IVPB listed which is different than what my healthcare system utilizes. I was just curious if anyone would share what concentration, fluid, and BUD your system uses for levothyroxine IVPB and/or what is utilized for organ donor patients?

Thanks for the help!
