The UK Resuscitation Council's Guidelines for Healthcare Providers recommend a 5 -10 mcg/kg dose.
Emerade is the only AAI in the UK to offer a 500mcg as well as 150mcg and 300mcg doses. The higher dose offered by Emerade helps you to ensure that your adult patients receive the recommended dose for their weight.
The diagram below illustrates the correct dosing for Emerade. Please refer to the Summary of Product Characteristics before prescribing.
500 μg is not recommended for use in children
