The Victorian Emergency and Life Saving Medicines (ELSM) Register is maintained by the Victorian Poisons Information Centre (VPIC) on behalf of the Victorian Therapeutic Advisory Group (VicTAG) as a service to member hospitals. It is intended as a mechanism for information sharing. Details have been provided by participating hospitals in Victoria and are updated annually and when new information is provided by participating hospitals. 

Stock levels quoted in the Register are based on reports received from hospitals. Stock may not be held at the stated levels at all times. For more detailed information about actual stock holdings at a particular time, and access to stock in emergency situations, please contact individual hospitals.
