Protocol 03 – Cardiogenic Shock
Second Author should be Nic Thompson
Protocol 22 – Status Epilepticus
Propofol Infusion loading dose should read 1.5-2 mg/kg bolus
Protocol 49B – Transvenous Pacemaker Insertion
Transvenous pacing is not usually effective in poisoning-induced bradycardias.
The hypothermic bradycardic patient is generally unresponsive to electrical stimulation (and atropine).
Protocol 5B – Hypertensive Encephalopathy
Eliminate retinal hemorrhage or exudate from Bullet 3
Put in line about checking echo before heavy beta-blockade to make sure no cardiomyopathy
In tabel, PTU should read “500-1000 mcg”, not “100”
Protocol 17 – Trach Disasters
Consider indenting 5-8 under obstruction section
Protocol 46 – Neuroprotective Intubation
Item #1 link to 48 should be link to 43
Item #9: Propofol starting dose reads 15 mcg/min., should read 15 mcg/kg/min
Item#9:Link to 46 should be link to 47
Item # 1: Reference Protocol 46-Neuroprotective Intubation
Change Keppra to new dosing
And at last I’d like to make a recommendation: Consider making the register fitting to the corresponding protocols. As the first Section overview page has 20 thumb-register fields, but the following protocols only add up to 18 leads to a width-discrepancy in the thumb-register. Putting my thumb on the register for protocol 17, and fanning through the book until I see a white field beneath my thumb makes me stop at protocol 15. You might want to consider adapting the size of the thumb-register fields in the protocols to match the size in the index in order to further “fool-proof” this book and to eliminate the potential for error.
