Update Compounding Recipes for Oral Liquids to Standard Concentrations
You'll see a push to standardize concentrations for compounded ORAL liquids to help prevent med errors during transitions of care.
This makes sense. Dosing errors occur when patients get switched from one concentration to another but volumes aren't adjusted...especially when patients go into or out of the hospital.
For example, baclofen is often compounded as 1, 5, or 10 mg/mL. These concentration differences can lead up to a 10-fold dosing error if only the volume is reported.
