Auxiliary Labels for Neuromuscular Blocking Agents

Medi-Dose, Inc / EPS, Inc

To help pharmacists comply with the recommendations of ISMP and other authorities, Medi-Dose has created a series of neuromuscular blocking agent warning labels, which are available in preprinted sheets. By recommendation, auxiliary labels stating “Warning: Paralytic Agent – Causes Respiratory Arrest – Patient Must Be Ventilated” should be placed on all storage bins and final medication containers (eg, vials, syringes, IV bags) of neuromuscular blocking agents to clearly communicate that respiratory paralysis will occur and ventilation is required. The same images are available for Medi-Dose’s MILT software users, allowing easy addition of the warning to their unit dose packaging and labeling.
