Look for The Joint Commission to Add Leeway for Titrations

You'll play a key role in ensuring that orders for titratable infusions are appropriate...based on updates from The Joint Commission.

Continue to check that these orders include initial and max rates...how much and how often to titrate...and objective goals.

For example, propofol may start at 5 mcg/kg/min, and titrate up or down by 5 mcg/kg/min Q5 minutes, with a max of 50 mcg/kg/min...to maintain a Richmond Agitation-Sedation Scale score of -1 to 0.
