Vasopressin wins the prize for the smallest writing on an ampoule ever. Clearly not intended to be read by anyone over the age of 40. Oxycodone for comparison

Low cost maybe, high plastic waste definitely πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ there are definitely better options...

Creating nudges to reduce medication errors are required-Interesting tactile device to help aid slow administration,increase user’s awareness.Not sure of feasibility but great to see research investigating ways of improving

Get writing a response to and get the suggestion to have them match the syringe labelling colour guidelines published?

Designed to prevent overdose errors when giving vasoactive medications but the device in its current form is red....I did raise an eyebrow when I saw this

Agree. The definition of 'drug error' in that study is ridiculously broad - and therefore not useful. These are more plausible statistics. *Reported* rate of error likely to underestimate actual error rate though.

Yup It lacks face validity is the best way I can put it....as I think the Anaesthesiology letter makes clear. For example inadequate analgesia is not a drug error...

1 in 20? The median number of drugs given in a UK anaesthetic is 8. ( allergen survey). Several drugs will be given more than once. Is there really, credible evidence that a drug error occurs in every other anaesthetic?

πŸ”Drug errors have been shown to occur in 1 out of every 20 peri‐operative drug administrations. Will this novel low‐cost haptic feedback device for syringes, demonstrated in this new study, help prevent drug administration errors? πŸ”—

Bonkers that the system for identifying milk is more rigidly adhered to by suppliers than that for drugs.

I agree entirely. I really do think we NEED system changes (and like the idea of integrating barcode scanning, profiles syringes etc) but am still wary of n+1 complexity (without quality evidence of benefit).

While I take your point re added complexity & the potential for any of these measures to be overcome, no one is suggesting any of these measures become a *substitute* for vigilance. They facilitate & augment vigilance to ”make it easier to get things right”.

Here's an opinion. None of this bullshit overlayed complexity will make our jobs any easier or safer as most of us will find a way to bypass said security measures in order to be more efficient. No substitute for vigilance imo
