I have revealed drugs 21-33 I carry in order of usefulness.
Note: I started with 32, but during the course of doing the list, realized I had forgotten one and actually had 33.
Here is the list:
22. Sodium Bicarbonate
28. Activated Charcoal
Of these I only used Solu-medrol, Toradol and Bicarb last year. Maybe with the exception of Calcium and Bicarb for that rare call, I wouldn’t be too nervous about not carrying any of these drugs. The only one I am advocating getting rid of is Lasix, and I do feel that Lidocaine, Phenergan and Vasopressin are somewhat redundant given other drugs we carry (Amiodarone, Zofran, Epinephrine)). I am going to make an effort to use Activated Charcoal and some of the other drugs listed here if I can find an appropriate call.
Now as we move up the list toward what I call The Essential Eight, the choices are going to become harder.
