Standardised Infusions

Standardising intravenous infusion concentrations in children in the UK

The Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacy Group (NPPG), with support from the Royal College of Paediatrics of Child Health (RCPCH) has produced a proposal for a national approach for standardised intravenous infusion concentrations in children

This framework document has now been updated, The NPPG and BAPM have worked together to update this framework and introduce some NICU concentrations for some of the drugs listed in the Infusion Standardisation Framework. This was supported by RCPCH and Joint RCPCH/NPPG Standing Committee on Medicines (JMC) and this framework aims to provide a list of standardised intravenous infusion concentrations for use in infants over 2 kg and children.
