A new CIWA order set utilizing Phenobarbital for alcohol withdrawal will be introduced, coming this October! This order set will be used in addition to the preexisting Ativan order set.
Did you know that the 2nd floor will be piloting a new CIWA order set using Phenobarbital?
Is it supposed to replace the current CIWA Ativan order set?
No, both order sets will be available, starting October. The doctor/resident will select either Ativan or Phenobarbital, depending on the patients s/s.
Is there anything we need to know?
Education will be disseminated in the next couple of weeks.
Great. Thank you!
