Life saving and emergency medicines register
The South Australian Lifesaving Drugs Register is maintained by the Medicines and Technology Policy and Programs Branch of the Department for Health and Ageing as a service to hospitals. It is intended only as a mechanism for information sharing and does not provide recommendations about either appropriate stock levels or clinical management for emergency situations.
Details have been provided by pharmacists in metropolitan public hospitals in South Australia and are updated annually.
Stock levels quoted in the Register are based on reports received by the public hospitals. These stock levels are minimum stock holdings but may change without notice. For more detailed information about actual stock holdings at a particular time, and access to stock in emergency situations, please contact individual hospitals.
