Australasian Neonatal Medicines Formulary
The drug guidelines and other documents in the Australasian Neonatal Medicines Formulary (ANMF) are produced after thorough review of the literature relevant to the use of each drug in the neonate. They are constructed with a view to use of the medications within the New South Wales legal framework and within the medical environment of Newborn Intensive Care. The guidelines are reviewed on a regular basis, but there is no claim that all current regulatory or safety warnings have been added. Care should be taken that the most up to date version of ANMF is being used. Although all care is taken in the production of these guidelines, no responsibility is accepted regarding the use of ANMF and no liability is accepted to any consequences resulting from following the recommendations of this product.
PLEASE NOTE: Formularies marked with an asterisk (*) are for exclusive use within the Neonatal Intensive Care at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and have not been reviewed by ANMF group.
