EXCEL IV Container
0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection USP is indicated for extracellular fluid replacement, treatment of metabolic alkalosis in the presence of fluid loss and mild sodium depletion. Not made with latex, PVC or DEHP.
Each 100 mL of 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection USP contains: Sodium Chloride USP 0.9 g; Water for Injection USP qs pH: 5.6 (4.57.0) Calculated Osmolarity: 310 mOsmol/liter pH adjusted with Hydrochloric Acid NF Concentration of Electrolytes (mEq/liter): Sodium 154 Chloride 154.
Sodium Chloride Injections USP are sterile, nonpyrogenic, isotonic and contain no bacteriostatic or antimicrobial agents.
The formulas of the active ingredients are:
The plastic container is made from a multilayered film specifically developed for parenteral drugs. It contains no plasticizers and exhibits virtually no leachables. The solution contact layer is a rubberized copolymer of ethylene and propylene. The container is nontoxic and biologically inert. The containersolution unit is a closed system and is not dependent upon entry of external air during administration. The container is overwrapped to provide protection from the physical environment and to provide an additional moisture barrier when necessary.
Addition of medication should be accomplished using complete aseptic technique. The closure system has two ports; the one for the administration set has a tamper evident plastic protector and the other is a medication addition site. Refer to the Directions for Use of the container.
Sodium Chloride Injections USP provide electrolytes and are a source of water for hydration. They are capable of inducing diuresis depending on the clinical condition of the patient. Sodium, the major cation of the extracellular fluid, functions primarily in the control of water distribution, fluid balance, and osmotic pressure of body fluids. Sodium is also associated with chloride and bicarbonate in the regulation of the acid-base equilibrium of body fluid. Chloride, the major extracellular anion, closely follows the metabolism of sodium, and changes in the acid-base balance of the body are reflected by changes in the chloride concentration.
Indications and Usage
These intravenous solutions are indicated for use in adults and pediatric patients as sources of electrolytes and water for hydration. 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection USP is indicated for extracellular fluid replacement, treatment of metabolic alkalosis in the presence of fluid loss and mild sodium depletion. 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection USP is also indicated for use as a priming solution in hemodialysis procedures and may be used to initiate and terminate blood transfusions without hemolyzing red blood cells. Sodium Chloride Injections USP are also indicated as pharmaceutic aids and diluents for the infusion of compatible drug additives. Refer to prescribing information accompanying additive drugs.
