Abstract

Llewellyn, L. (2007) Changing inotrope infusions: which technique is best? Nursing Times; 103: 8, 30-31. Inotrope infusions are commonly used in paediatric intensive care units (PICUs) to achieve cardiovascular stability in critically ill patients. These infusions are administered continuously and require frequent changeover. Various methods are used in practice when changing the infusions, none of which are evidence based. An audit was conducted to determine which method of changeover caused the least cardiovascular compromise to patients. This is a summary: the full paper and reference list can be accessed at nursingtimes.net.
