We posted a short survey on Twitter about dosing of caffeine.

  • Do you use caffeine (citrate) at a maintance dose of ≥20 mg/kg/day?
  • Do you follow serum levels of caffeine?

Take the survey on Twitter and/or share your practises here!



We do not use caffeine (citrate) at a maintance dose of ≥20 mg/kg/day. In our NICU, we can not  monitor serum levels of caffeine.

We use Coffein citrat 》 20 mg/ ml po/IV for some special individual cases. And we monitor Caffeine Levels, jitterness, tachycardia. We find no close correlation between caf. Levels and high doses.  We succed in prevention of intubation most ofen in using doxaprame hydrochlorid.
