We use the round, colored stickers usually found in office supply or craft stores to write what kind of medicine or vaccine
we want to pull up in the syringe. We use abbreviations such as k/v for ketamine and valium, HDM for hydromorphone, and DD
for dexmedetomidine. We place the stickers on the syringes after we draw up the medicine. It is our way to double check what
we are administering.
