B and R Medical Rapitube Dosing Guide

Rapitube-373-226

If EMS is using rapid sequence intubation (RSI), the patient will be feeling the need for speed as you secure their airway. Depending on your protocol, you may have several drugs to give before the intubation attempt. And most drug doses are based on the weight of the patient. Figuring pounds to kilograms and then mg/kg can take time the patient canÌt afford. B & R Medical offers the Rapitube Dosing Guide, a pre-calculated medication reference thatÌs easy to use. Simply slide the card to the patientÌs weight and read the doses for the various drugs. It has dual-sided adult and pediatric doses, with a slide card thatÌs locked so it canÌt be reversed, thus preventing accidental over- or under-dosage.
