—In the "Adult Advanced Cardiac Life Support" section of "Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiac Care," published in the October 28, 1992, issue of The JOURNAL (1992;268:2199-2241), two errors occurred in the text. In the last paragraph on page 2228, the dose for norepinephrine should be 0.5 to 30 μg/min [not 0.5 to 30 μg/kg per minute]. In the fifth full paragraph on page 2229, the starting dose of nitroglycerin should be 10 to 20 μg/min [not 10 to 20 μg/kg per minute]. Doses are correct in the description of drugs on pages 2209 and 2210 and in the relevant algorithm, Fig 8 on page 2227.
