What are the best resources for learning how to calculate insulin and enoxaparin dilutions for this population? We get some pretty wacky orders. Are there any calculators for double checking calculaitons? Thank you and I look forward to your responses.
Taketomo Lexicomp and "Teddy Bear" are the usuals. I don't know of a really comprehensive neonatal but Lexicomp comes about 40% of the way. By the way, the first serious mistake I made in my career was not thinking about lactation as a source of meds for neonates, you should always look at the mother's MAR if breastfeeding and consult Briggs.
Thank you, however, I am more specifically looking at calculating such dilutions. For instance, how to go from a 1 unit/100ml to a .08 unit/ml insulin or from a 8mg/1.25ml stock solution of enoxaparin to a 10mg/0.1ml solution.
