Tramadol injection - Typographical Error in the Handbook on Injectable Drugs
The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) is notifying practitioners of a typographical error in the tramadol injection monograph in the Trissel’s Handbook on Injectable Drugs 15th edition.
The additive compatibility table on page 1534 lists an incorrect concentration for dexamethasone sodium phosphate (440 g/L) in the third column from the left of the first line. The correct dexamethasone sodium phosphate concentration is 440 mg/L. The correction notice and an updated compatibility table are posted on ASHP’s website at http://www.ashp.org/Import/NEWS/Corrections/CorrectionNotice_HID.aspx. Please correct this error in all copies of the book and notify staff who may use this book.
Tramadol hydrochloride injection is not currently marketed in the US, although it may be available for investigational use in some settings. Tramadol hydrochloride injection is currently available in other countries.
