    • Join us on March 27 for our webinar, Addressing Safety Challenges with U-500 Insulin (And did you know U-200 and U-300 insulin products are now on the way?). Since only U-100 syringes are available for insulin administration, confusion exists when measuring doses of U-500 insulin. Given the increase in use of U-500 insulin, ISMP has received a growing number of reports related to serious 5-fold dosing errors with the drug. Learn more about common errors with U-500 insulin and how to prevent them. Also, share in the discussion of two new insulin concentrations in clinical trials, and assess their benefits and risks compared to U-100 and U-500 insulin.
