In the pursuit of sharing the wealth, this fast method offers high accuracy across the board for any weight range, any IV bag size, and 5 to 20 mcg dose amounts. Convert: 5 mcg / kg / min, to ML/HR pump setting. Standard 400 mg Dopamine (10 ml vial) is mixed in IV bag (10 ml vial added to 100 & 250 ml bag, others are negligible) Results are ML/HR ONLY for a med pump or a dial-a-flow / hour set, NOT drops per minute. Ensure IV bag is 3 feet above patient to facilitate flow of infusion. DETERMINE Weight and multiply by factor shown: Pounds multiplied by 0.085 ( max 0.3% error differential ) OR Kilograms multiplied by 0.19 (exact is 0.1875) ( max 1.3% error diff. ) THEN MULTIPLY BY For IV Bag (Actual Concentration) 0.44 110 ml 3636 mcg / ml 1.04 260 1538 2 500 800 (exact: 784) 4 1000 400 After ml / hr is calculated, to increase from 5 mcg / kg / min, to 10 mcg / kg / min, multiply by 2. 15 mcg / kg / min, multiply by 3 20 mcg / kg / min, multiply by 4. _______________________________________________ OR, OPTIONAL CONDENSED VERSION IV bag Pounds x Kilos x 100 ml (110) 0.0374 0.0836 250 ml (260) 0.0884 0.1976 500 0.17 0.38 1000 0.34 0.76 For 10 mcg dose, multiply by 2, 15 mcg, by 3, 20 mcg, by 4. _______________________________________________ ALways..... Fluids BEFORE Pressors... with consideration for Pulmonary Edema, Aneurism, CVA bleed, Cardiac Dysrhythmia, Pulmonary artery pressure (rare), angina, rebound hypertension from aggressive fluids/pressors/other meds, respiratory depression, tachycardia, reflex bradycardia, and vomiting among other things. Substituting Dopamine in place of Norepinephrine for septic shock is suspect to increased mortality. Low dose Dopamine should never be used in a field setting for increasing function of renal failure. Interactions with EMS meds: albuterol, oxytocin, promethazine, digoxin, xopenex, isoproterenol, and lowers the effects of diabetic medications. Over 300 medications will interact poorly with Dopamine. Please check with your medical direction before changing, adding to, or subtracting from your system's protocols.
