  • Researchers have spent the last several years studying EMS medication errors in pediatric emergencies. They didn’t just study the problem, though. When they figured out where we fail, they did something about it. They created the Medication Emergency Dosing and Intervention Cards, or the MI-MEDIC. The one tool in the field that tells you the mg’s, AND how many milliliters, the volume of a medication, to administer based on commonly supplied concentrations. This 2-part series seeks to be an in-service training for the MI-MEDIC, and is designed to introduce you to the next tool in your box, that finally answers that question, “How much do I push?” - Pediatrics - Medication Administration * The Additional Information (PDF) provides the updated 2019 MI-Medic dosages.
