Epinephrine infusions


Epinephrine infusions

  • Clark uses epinephrine infusions on many of the elderly, debilitated patients for spinal cases.
  • He puts 100 micrograms of epinephrine in a 10 cc syringe and uses an infuser.
  • He runs it at about 2 micrograms per minute. The pump must be put in the micrograms per minute mode during setup rather than micrograms per kilogram per minute.
  • He slowly titrates the dose up as needed.
