Sterile Water for Irrigation USP is a sterile, hypotonic, nonpyrogenic irrigating fluid or pharmaceutic aid (solvent) entirely composed of Sterile Water for Injection USP. It is prepared by distillation and contains no antimicrobial or bacteriostatic agents or added buffers. The pH is 5.7 (5.0-7.0)

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 container-solution 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.

Not made with natural rubber latex, PVC or DEHP.

Sterile Water for Irrigation USP is utilized for a variety of clinical indications. Because of its low refractive index (1.3325), water provides excellent visibility during endoscopic urological procedures. It is also utilized as a pharmaceutic aid, as well as in the preparation of enteral nutrient products.

Water is hypotonic and will cause hemolysis and will be readily absorbed by the tissues during surgical procedures; therefore, its use under such conditions is not recommended.

Sterile Water for Irrigation USP is indicated for use as an irrigating fluid or pharmaceutic aid. Sterile Water may also be used as an adjunct in the preparation of non-intravenously administered nutrient mixtures (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION ).

Not for injection.
