The pH is approximately 7.5. The osmolality is approximately 300 mOsm/Kg.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

BSS Sterile Irrigating Solution is an isotonic solution for use in irrigating tissues of the eyes.

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

For use as an extraocular and intraocular irrigating solution during ocular surgical procedure involving perfusion of the eye with an expected maximum duration of less than 60 minutes.

WARNINGS

• NOT FOR INJECTION OR INTRAVENOUS INFUSION.

• Do not use unless product is clear, seal is intact, and container is undamaged.

• Do not use if product is discolored or contains a precipitate.

• SINGLE patient use only. The contents of this bottle should not be used in more than one patient.

• This solution contains no preservative, unused contents should be discarded.

PRECAUTIONS

Open under aseptic conditions only.

Prior to use, check the following: tip should be firmly in place, irrigating needle should be properly seated; squeeze out several drops before inserting into anterior chamber. The needle should be removed from the anterior chamber prior to releasing pressure to prevent suction.

Studies suggest that intraocular irrigating solutions which are iso-osmotic with normal aqueous fluids should be used with caution in diabetic patients undergoing vitrectomy since intraoperative lens changes have been observed.

There have been reports of corneal clouding or edema following ocular surgery in which BSS Sterile Irrigating Solution was used as an irrigating solution.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Irrigation or any other trauma to the corneal endothelium may result in corneal swelling or bullous keratopathy. Post-operative inflammatory reactions as well as incidents of corneal edema and corneal decompensation have been reported.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

The adapter plug is designed to accept an irrigating needle. Tissues may be irrigated by attaching the needle to the DROP-TAINER bottle as explained below. External irrigation may be done without the irrigating needle.

Method of using Adapter Plug for LUER-LOK Hub Ophthalmic Irrigating Needle:

1. Aseptically remove DROP-TAINER bottle from blister by peeling paper backing.
