Dosing Error in The Harriet Lane Handbook, 21e

We have just been notified by Elsevier, the publisher of The Harriet Lane Handbook, that a dosage error for hydromorphone HCL (in Child and Adolescent ≥50 kg) has been found in 21st edition of the Handbook. The original text indicated that the dose was weight-based, and it is not. Here’s what you need to know:
