Participant

when faced with this situation in the past, we made it a normal practice to quickly prepare couple of epinephrine 1 mg / 10 mL doses using the ampoule and saline 10 Ml at the start of any code blue and properly label it for use. As you give a dose to nurse/physician to administer, you prepare another one (cost was not prohibitive). This was possible because we had a pharmacist participating in all code blue events. It was a big relieve for our nurses to know that we had an expert available there side by side to help in this life threatening situation.
