What are the essential PRN meds for the dying patient
How do you convert oral morphine to IV/SC, titrate and and prescribe the maintenance dose?
PO dose divided by 2 = IV/SC dose
When making the syringe driver put the total amount (background + PRNs used) to run over 24hrs into to it and then devide this total amount by 6 to get the PRN dose.
The PRN dose it always 1/6 of the new total dose.
