I'm starting a new job in a level 3 NICU and my job offer is contingent on me passing a NICU pharmacology test. I feel pretty confident about all the topics on the study guide except IV incompatibilities. At work right now (a level 2 NICU), I look up everything in our med book to make sure it's compatible with TPN and lipids before I give it. I just don't trust my memory on this! And we don't give the full range of meds a level 3 NICU would. But for this test, I'm supposed to have the common incompatibilities memorized.
So far I have ampicillin, versed, albumin, acyclovir, gancyclovir, amphotericin B, indocin and ibuprofen, and phenobarb down for being incompatible with TPN and lipids. Am I missing any? Are there any other common drugs you might give at the same time if they were compatible (like 2 antibiotics that can't mix?) Anything else you can think I should have memorized? Thank you so much!
