Amiodarone in the New ACLS Guidelines
To the Editor:
On page I-121 of the recently published 2000 Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care,1 the diluent for amiodarone was reported to be saline or glucose. I wish to point out that amiodarone is not compatible with saline. The preferred diluent is 5% dextrose.
