 ICU patients can be intimidating.   I think what most nurses worry about is managing up to 10 or more IV medications at once.  Added to that, managing drips.   My first time managing a patient with drips was a bit scary.  I kept close to my preceptor and triple-checked every slight adjustment I made to the medications.   This cheat sheet will help you keep ICU drip medications straight with the names, dosages, and max doses.
