Abstract

A prospective, systematic surveillance, of a period of 3 months, was carried out in the Ospedali Riuniti in Bergamo. Six paediatric units in one hospital participated. Extemporaneous preparations of medicines were given to 80 children, six of whom were premature newborns. The children received 97 prescriptions for medicines requiring extemporaneous formulations, corresponding to a total of 2821 doses. The drugs used most often were: chlorhexidine, captopril and acetylsalicylic acid. Prescriptions were usually for children with chronic conditions, in particular malignancy and congenital heart disease. The preparations consisted of: 57% crushed tablets, 28% mouth washes, 8% syrups and 7% solutions.
