Anyone tell me how to taper steroids on CCS exam.




  #2

there is no agreed on guidlines for tapering the dose.......u can use the day after day approach which is usually half the duration of ttt

or you can taper the dose gradually every 4-7days

Thanks, but I am unable to do it on UW CCS software. If for example I have to discharge a patient on steriods and want him to taper it down next week....how shud I do that.
I tried writing TAPER/DECREASE DOSE but nothing matches...
can anyone help.

  #5

  #6

they dont care if you taper steroids or not. It's not required

You don't need to taper the dose of steroid in case of CCS. Remember that CCS software also don't ask you to remember the doses of the drugs. so forget about this while doing your practice of CCS.
