  1) How to order oral prednisone for 5 days and then taper ? How to taper the drug on ccs guys ?

2)If case ends and the pt is still in ward and is on albuterol nebuliser then how can we make that nebulised albu to mdi albu ? Just delete the previous order and add the new one ?

  1. can you choose a dose on the CCS?
if you can not choose a dose, how do you think you can TAPER???

2. Do whatever; it gets converted to albuterol, inhaled. THe software does not seem to discrminiate between MDI vs. Nebulizer

  So tapering a dose is just theoretical. we should leave him on oral prednisone. is that so?

Thanks for the reply dude
