Trying to determine if any other institutions call epinephrine 10 mcg/mL anything other than Epi-sticks. At our hospital, it's commonly referred to as epi "spritzers" and, since that is always how I've known it, I didn't think it was weird until I brought it up at a system meeting. Our nurses asked if we could put "spritzer" in as an alias name for it, but I do worry that might actually be making the problem of using nicknames for drugs worse if I do this.
