A word about dosing
Drug doses were chosen to accurately reflect what is used clinically for our specific anesthetic and critical care needs. Research articles, drug company recommendations, clinical judgment, experience, staff recommendations and multiple references are all taken into account when choosing a dose. Many of the doses were extremely difficult to choose given the great variability in references. Sometimes a best average had to be used. Emphasis is placed on dosing per body weight (mg/kg or mcg/kg/min for infusions) to provide the largest range of use. Pediatric dosing is frequently possible and emphasized.
