ICU Card

This card is designed to be a readily available guide to acceptable physiological variables, endotracheal tube sizes and positions, and to doses of drugs and other therapies.

It is not a recipe card - it is important that you think carefully if "standard" doses of drugs are appropriate for any individual patient. Do not just blindly follow the doses given here - think first.

This blue-striped card is intended for ICU staff or others who have been trained to use the drugs and procedures described. If you are after a card intended for general medical staff, click here.

Do not print the version you see here. You can download a PDF version of the card which is suitable for printing and laminating in a form that you might keep in your wallet or attach to your hospital ID badge.
