What If My Dopamine Calculation Doesn’t Work?

By November 30, 2015 No Comments

EMS Drug TipsThis is an update to a previous “guestimate” method – correct to 1 gtts/minute by David Brenner that I recently released

David previously explained his technique for how to derive the drip rate, quickly and in your head, for dopamine drips that was accurate to 1gtts/minute. You can check that out by clicking here.

David explained that we could be more precise if we divided (people hate that word) the patient’s weight in pounds by 5.86666666667. But really, most of us can’t do that in our heads or even quickly on paper.

David’s new process is more precise without ridiculous long division with decimals. However, we get to multiply by a decimal fraction that we can do in a few moments.

You can download it via the link below and save it to your computer.
