We are currently looking at how we give medications that are IVP and given undiluted in adults or very low volume medications such as diphenhydramine, lorazepam and pepcid. I would love to know what other pediatric centers do as thier SOP. Do you push meds straight into the line undiluted? Do you use syringe pumps?
Any information would be helpful, thank you!
