MedicationSyringeDrawExpertPeerReviewStamp2x200Rob Bryant, MD (@RobJBryant13), Amie Hatch, PharmD, BCPS (@Amie_EMPharmD), and Jeremy Bair, PharmD (@bairpharm) from Intermountain Healthcare in Utah have created and adopted a fantastic medication reference card which is used by physicians and nurses in the Emergency Department. The medications were chosen because they are often prone to dosing errors and require time-sensitive ordering. They generously offered to share this incredibly compact resource for free to the Emergency Medicine community as a PV card. If you see them, give them a high-five.

The card has a double-sided trifold design, with categories including intubation, sedation, vasopressors, and toxicology. There is an adult and a pediatric side to help in those ever stressful sick patient encounters.

Thanks also to ALiEM experts Zlatan Coralic, PharmD (@ZEDPharm) and Bryan Hayes, PharmD (@PharmERToxGuy) for their intensive, pre-publication, expert-peer review of the resource card, which underwent several revisions before final publication. To get a better view of the card content, view and download the Emergency Drug Card PDF.
