|2.||As an adjunct in the treatment of cardiogenic shock after myocardial infarction or endotoxic shock.|
|3.||The relief of bronchospasm.|
|1.||It should never be given simultaneously with adrenaline but may be used alternately.|
|2.||Patients with pre-existing cardiac arrhythmias associated with tachycardia.|
|3.||In digitalis intoxication and during anaesthesia with chloroform, cyclopropane, halothane, and other halogenated anaesthetics since it may provoke or worsen ventricular arrhythmias.|
|4.||Hypersusceptible patients, including those with hyperthyroidism or cardiovascular disorders such as acute coronary disease or cardiac asthma.|
Initially, 1 mL (0,2 mg) undiluted solution, followed by 0,75 to 1 mL (0,15 to 0,2 mg)
Initially, 1 mL (0,2 mg) undiluted solution, followed by 0,1 to 5 mL (0,02 to 1 mg)
0,1 mL (0,02 mg) undiluted solution
|Direct intravenous injection:|
1 mL (0,2 mg) solution should be diluted to 10 mL with sterile sodium chloride 0,9% or dextrose 5% in water. The usual initial dosage range of this 1:50 000 dilution is 1 to 3 mL (0,02 to 0,06 mg). Subsequent doses of 0,5 to 10 mL (0,01 to 0,2 mg) of this diluted solution are recommended.
Add 10 mL of the 1:5 000 solution (2 mg) to 500 mL diluent. The usual rate is 0,125 to 2,5 mL (0,5 to 10 µg) per minute (the rate must be individualized according to the patient's needs). Higher doses up to 40 µg per minute may be necessary in the treatment of heartblock.
Add 5 mL (1 mg) to 500 mL diluent to give a 1:500 000 solution. The usual rate of infusion is 0,25 to 2,5 mL (0,5 to 5 µg) per minute, but the rate must be individually adjusted.
Dilute 1 mL (0,2 mg) to 10 mL with sterile dextrose 5% in water or sodium chloride 0,9%. Administer a dose of 0,5 to 1 mL (0,01 to 0,02 mg) by direct intravenous injection, repeat when necessary.
