Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% is indicated for diluting or dissolving drugs for intravenous, intramuscular or subcutaneous injection, according to instructions of the manufacturer of the drug to be administered.

10 mL fill in 12 mL syringe, 0.9% Sodium Chloride, USP, single use.

None

When used to dilute drug products, consult the drug product manufacturer’s instructions for choice of vehicle, appropriate dilution or volume for dissolving drugs to be injected including the route and rate of injection. Inspect reconstituted (diluted or dissolved) drugs for clarity (if soluble) and freedom from unexpected precipitation or discoloration prior to administration. Do not use Sodium Chloride Injection, USP 0.9% if the solution is discolored, cloudy, hazy, or contains a precipitate, or if the syringe is damaged.

Re-use of single-use product creates a potential risk to the user. Contamination of product and/or limited functionality of the syringe may lead to injury, illness or death. Discard any unused portion.

Adverse reactions which may occur because of this solution, added drugs or the technique of reconstitution or administration include, but are not limited to, air embolization, febrile response, local tenderness, abscess, tissue necrosis or infection at the site of injection, venous thrombosis or phlebitis extending from the site of injection and extravasation.

If an adverse reaction does occur, discontinue the infusion, evaluate the patient, institute appropriate therapeutic countermeasures, and if possible, retrieve and save the remainder of unused vehicle for examination if deemed necessary.

Some drugs or injections may be incompatible when combined with 0.9% sodium chloride. Before Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% is used as a vehicle for the administration of a drug, the drug product manufacturer’s instructions or other specific references should be checked for any possible incompatibility with sodium chloride.

Consult with a pharmacist, if unsure of compatibility.

Sodium Chloride Injection, USP 0.9% is a sterile, nonpyrogenic, isotonic solution of sodium chloride and water for injection. It contains no bacteriostatic antimicrobial agents or added buffer. The nominal pH is 5.5 (4.5 to 7.0).

Hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide may have been added for pH adjustment. Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% contains 9 g/L Sodium Chloride, USP (NaCl) with a calculated osmolarity of approximately 308 mOsmol/L. It contains 154 mEq/L sodium and 154 mEq/L chloride.

The syringe component of Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% is manufactured with polypropylene and luer lock.

The syringe is not made with natural rubber latex. The syringe is not made with DEHP. This product contains no preservative. The syringes require no vapor barrier to maintain the proper drug concentration. The empirical formula for sodium chloride is NaCl and the molecular weight is 58.44 g/mol.

Supplied as single use syringes.

Sodium chloride in water dissociates to provide sodium (Na+) and chloride (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 an isotonic vehicle for parenteral injection of drugs or for flushing of indwelling access devices, is unlikely to exert a significant effect on fluid and electrolyte balance except possibly in neonates and very small infants.

The drug product is packaged in a clear plastic hypodermic syringe, which consists of a hypodermic barrel with luer lock, plunger stopper, plunger rod, and tip cap. There are two syringe sizes (6 mL and 12 mL), intended for single use and subsequent disposal. Medefil is approved for the following fill volumes

Currently, the drug product is marketed only as 10mL fill in 12mL syringe. The filled 6 mL and 12 mL syringes are packaged individually in plastic pouches.

DOSAGE FORM

The above product is available in boxes of 30, 60 or 120 count each.
