BOTHA, M et al. Adrenaline and amiodarone dosages in resuscitation: Rectifying misinformation. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.103, n.10, pp.713-714. ISSN 2078-5135.

South African literature should reflect the latest evidence to guide resuscitation and safe patient care. This article addresses erroneous details regarding life-saving interventions in the South African Medicines Formulary, 10th edition.
