Question CCS Treatment; Bolus versus Continuous

If you order something in CCS, like e.g. an antibiotic and you want to give it for like 10 days, how do you do that?
Do you put the antibiotic in, choose oral e.g. and then continous? I mean it only gives the option bolus/one time or continuous!

I think we order route and write in how many days, I know the system has an "Auto Order" feature where you can pick from standard orders, but I have not practiced yet. there seems to be only two places to practice CCS, UW and USMLE Consult.

I practiced with the sample material from usmle.org, that's where I saw that and, really, CCS doesn't give you much options in terms of administration, it gives you the route but then it's only one time/bolus or continuous, which is confusing to me.

Anybody else?

Hmm do we then write an order to stop after so long? only 1x and Continuous? I know the IV fluids are ok to leave running in some cases because we would in real life. I hope someone tells us too I want to know, I'm reading the Archer lecture now maybe its in there? I'll post it if I find out

You cannot specify the duration of therapy just choose continuous and if you like to stop it later you can cancel order.

This is actually will make your life easier as you don't need to specify duration of treatment.

The actual exam is the same, you have either one time dose or continuous.
