The Harriet Lane Handbook, 21e, has been restored to ClinicalKey

Please note: A dosage error for hydromorphone HCL (in Child and Adolescent ≥50 kg) has been found and corrected in The Harriet Lane Handbook, 21st edition. The original text indicated that the dose was weight-based, and it is not. The correct text is as follows:

Child and adolescent (≥50 kg; NOTE: doses are NOT weight-based):

IV: 0.2–0.6 mg/dose Q2–4 hr PRN

Should you own a print version of the book and wish to receive a sticker with the correction to print page 915, please request the sticker here:
