Sodium Chloride Injection is indicated as a source of water and
electrolytes. 0.9% Sodium Chloride injection is also indicated for
use as a priming solution in hemodialysis procedures. Side effects:
Reactions which may occur because of the solution or the technique
of administration include febrile response, infection at the site
of injection, venous thrombosis or phlebitis extending from the
site of injection, extravasation, and hypervolemia. If an adverse
reaction does occur, discontinue the infusion, evaluate the
patient, institute appropriate therapeutic countermeasures and save
the remainder of the fluid for examination if deemed necessary.
Due to potential toxicity of benzyl alcohol in newborns,
Bacteriostatic Sodium Chloride Injection, 0.9% containing benzyl
alcohol must not be used in this patient population. Bacteriostatic
Sodium Chloride Injection, 0.9% should not be used for fluid or
sodium chloride replacement.
Benzyl alcohol as a preservative in Bacteriostatic Sodium Chloride
Injection, 0.9% has been associated with toxicity in newborns. Data
is unavailable on the toxicity of other preservatives in this age
group. Preservative-free Sodium Chloride Injection, 0.9% should be
used for flushing intravascular catheters. Where a sodium chloride
solution is required for preparing or diluting medications for use
in newborns, only preservative-free Sodium Chloride Injection, 0.9%
should be used.
Bacteriostatic Sodium Chloride Injection, 0.9% should not be used
for those medicinals that specify the use of only Sodium Chloride
Injection, 0.9% as a sterile solvent. 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
hypopotassemia and acidosis. Excessive amounts by the parenteral
route may precipitate congestive heart failure and acute pulmonary
edema, especially in patients with cardiovascular disease and in
patients receiving corticosteroids or corticotropin or drugs that
may give rise to sodium retention.
Store below 25℃. Protect from light. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
