The following is an extensive list of drugs with their doses per kg body weight and with the adult doses (shown in brackets as the maximum pediatric dose). The list
was compiled in to different pages by Dr. Banani Poddar, Department of Critical Care Medicine, SGPGI, from the document provided by Prof. Frank Shann of the
Intensive Care Unit at the Royal Children’s Hospital at
. Suggestions and queries are welcome. Melbourne, Australia
Since the list was primarily developed for the PICU at the Royal Children's hospital, Melbourne, all infusions have been recommended to be made in '5% dex-hep',
which is what is used in their PICU. For our purpose, these infusions should be made in saline or distilled water.
DRUGS ARE LISTED BY GENERIC NAME, ALPHABETICALLY.
1/100=1%=10mg/ml, 1/1000=1mg/ml, 1/10000=0.1mg/ml
