Diluizione dei farmaci in Terapia Intensiva: indagine descrittiva sulle diluizioni in uso nelle Terapie Intensive della regione Emilia Romagna

Katia Munaretto, Sara Piombini, Guglielmo Imbrìaco

Abstract

Introduzione: Dalla revisione della letteratura si stima che gli errori farmacologici rappresentino una percentuale compresa tra il 12% ed il 20% di tutti gli errori avvenuti in ambiente sanitario. Da uno studio analizzato in una revisione di letteratura del 2013 si evince che il 44% degli errori farmacologici accaduti nelle Terapie Intensive avviene durante la preparazione, a causa di omissioni e di dosaggi errati, i qualirappresentano i più frequenti errori. Il setting delle Terapie Intensive fornisce assistenza ai pazienti più critici, che ricevono molteplici infusioni di medicinali alcuni dei quali potenzialmente rischiosi, ed è perciò associato a rischi significativi per eventi avversi e gravi errori.
