FULL PRESCRIBING INFORMATION
Spectra Medical Devices, Inc.
INJECTION, USP, 0.9%
Sodium chloride comprises over 90% of the inorganic constituents of the blood serum. Sodium chloride in water dissociates to provide sodium (Na+) and (Cl-) ions. These ions are normal constituents of the body fluids (principally extracellular) and are essential for maintaining electrolyte balance. The small volume of fluid and amount of sodium chloride provided by Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% when used only as a vehicle for parenteral injection of drugs, is unlikely to exert a significant effect on fluid and electrolyte balance except possibly in very small infants.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE
Sodium Chloride Injection is used to flush intravascular catheters or as a sterile, isontonic single dose vehicle, solvent, or diluent for substances to administered intravenously,k intramuscularly or sub-cutaneously and for other extemporaneously prepared single dose sterile solutions according to instructions of the manufacture of the drug to be administered.
Sodium Chloride must be used with caution in the presence of congestive heart failure, circulatory insufficiency, kidney dysfunction or hypoproteinemia.
Excessive amounts of sodium chloride by any route may cause hypokalemia and acidosis. Excessive amounts by parental routes may precipitate congestive heart failure and acute pulmonary edema, especially seen in patients with preexisting cardiovascular disease and those receiving coricos-teroids, corticotrophin or other drugs that may give rise to sodium retention. For use in newborns, when a Sodium Chloride solution is required for preparation or diluting medications, or in flushing intravenous catheters, only preservative-free Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% should be used.
Since Sodium Chloride Injection does not contain antimicrobial agents and is intended for single use, any unused amount must be discarded immediately following withdrawal of any portion of the contents of the vial or ampul. Do not open ampul until it is to be used.
Consult the manufactures instructions for choice of vehicle, appropriate dilution or volume for dissolving the drug to be injected, including the route and rate of injection.
CATEGORY C-Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Sodium Chloride Injection. It is also not known whether Sodium Chloride Injection can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can effect reproduction capacity. Sodium Chloride Injection should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.
When used as a diluent, solvent or intravascular flushing solution, this parental preparation is unlikely to pose a threat of sodium chloride or fluid overload except possible in very small infants. In the event these should occur, reevaluate the patient and institute appropriate corrective measures.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Before Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% is used as a vehicle for the administration of a drug;specific references should be checked for any possible incompatibility with sodium chloride. The volume of the preparation to be used for diluting or dissolving any drug for injection is dependent on the vehicle concentration, dose and route of administration as recommended by the manufacture.
Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% is also indicated for use in flushing intravenous catheters. Prior to and after administration of the medication, the intravenous catheter should be flushed in its entirety with Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9%. Use in accord with any warnings or precautions appropriate to the medication being administered as recommended by the manufacture. Parental drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit.
