Shared with hub by Dr Abigail Clark-Morgan:

Images shared of our stocked noradrenaline ampules and tranexamic acid – these have been mixed up and we are looking to stock alternative volumes of noradrenaline to reduce the likelihood of confusion.  The incident also highlighted the importance of checking all the ampules drawn up, drawing up your own medications at the point of administration and effective second checking.  Part of our immediate response was to label the noradrenaline ampules to make them more obviously different (the purple ampules pictured below).
