Epinephrine Shortage - Creating an Epinephrine 0.1mg/mL Syringe 

Creating an Epinephrine 0.1mg/mL Syringe - Regional hospitals are experiencing a shortage of pre-filled epinephrine syringes.  Because of this, the pharmacies may reduce the number of pre-filled syringes from 8 to 0 inside Medication Kits being restocked. A card will be placed in the outer pouch of a Medication Kit if it is affected.  Please note that there is still a 30cc epinephrine 1mg/mL multi-dose vial in the Medication Kit.  You can prepare epinephrine 0.1mg/mL by expending 1 cc from a pre-filled 10 cc saline syringe and drawing 1 cc of epinephrine 1mg/mL from the multi-dose vial. As always, have your partner verify your medication prior to administering and label your syringe!

Please watch the following PEMS-produced training video on how to  appropriately create the correct dosage for an epinephrine 0.1mg/mL dose.  The video may be found on PEMS' YouTube channel at:  https://youtu.be/EzNXSgOd4dE
