There was previous approval to increase the standard concentrations of vasopressors to prevent fluid overload in critically ill patients. Implementation of these new concentrations was delayed until the Medication Code Trays could be properly equipped to respond to these changes in the setting of an emergency. Please review the attached clinical alert. The new standard concentration of vasopressors will go-live on July 1, 2021.
