Blahh! My hospital now has a "Code Epi" shortage. What???
We draw up epi like it's candy in my cicu (ok so I can see why there might be a shortage) but now we are having to draw it up, dilute it then draw up our dosage for codes; and it's only good for an hour after making it. So much for trying to get your code meds ready in advance for that chest closure/exploration/elective ecmo cannulation...etc.
Not even sure what could come next in regards to med shortages. Epi, really??
