Treatment ID:TR001443
Treatment Summary:Pharmacists and staff prepared either levocarnitine or placebo in identical polypropylene infusion bags with labels that included the study identification number, patient name, medical record number, and infusion rate. For each dose of levocarnitine, 33% of the total dose was administered as a 20-mL bolus over 2 to 3 minutes, followed by a fixed-rate continuous infusion of 1 L over the next 12 hours. The study solution was administered through intravenous (IV) catheters using US Food and Drug JAMA Network Open | Critical Care Medicine Effect of Levocarnitine vs Placebo as an Adjunctive Treatment for Septic Shock JAMA Network Open. 2018;1(8):e186076. doi:10.1001/jamanetworkopen.2018.6076 (Reprinted) December 21, 2018 3/12 Downloaded From: by a University of Michigan User on 02/07/2020 Administration–approved medical equipment (IV tubing, IV pumps, etc). Levocarnitine was provided by Leadiant Biosciences (formerly Sigma-Tau Pharmaceuticals) and maintained by pharmacy staff, with tracking of lot numbers of levocarnitine administered.
