GB159 Intravenous Therapy Products, Technology And Markets:"Today, infusion therapy is almost routine. In hospitals, 90 percent of surgical patients and a third of non-surgical inpatients receive some form of intravenous therapy. Intravenous infusions are used for introducing fluids, nutrition, blood or its products, and medications to patients. Infusion product markets consist of two components: therapeutics, and hardware. The former consists of intravenous solutions and nutritionals, blood products, and intravenous drugs. The latter consist of vascular access and delivery devices. There has been major progress on both fronts. On the therapeutic front, new drugs and therapies have expanded the applications, offering more effective treatment of certain diseases."

Institute for Healthcare Improvement: Standardize Intravenous Solutions:"Reduce Adverse Drug Events (ADEs) Involving Intravenous Medications: Standardize Intravenous Solutions. When several different strengths of intravenous solutions are available, it is far too easy to dispense or administer a different solution than was ordered. There is little need for multiple solutions because doses administered can be controlled by the flow rate set. Standardize each medication to just one strength of solution, or as few as possible, to decrease the risk of selecting the wrong one."

Use and abuse of intravenous solutions, Journal of The American Medical Association (JAMA):"Recent microbial infusion disasters underline the fact that infusions carry a substantial risk of morbidity and mortality. Those who make a habit of setting up an intravenous infusion as a convenient route for the administration of drugs, or just in case it may be needed later, would do well to review their methodsmthe increased probability of contamination and subsequent patient infection by the practice of adding drugs to intravenous fluids is not generally recognized."

Quality Testing Of Intravenous Fluids:"Large-volume injections which are intended to be administered by intravenous infusion are commonly termed IV fluids, or simply infusion fluids. These are sterile solutions of simple chemicals such as sugars, amino acids or electrolytes - materials which can be easily carried by the circulatory system and assimilated."


Types of Intravenous Fluids Used in Shock:


0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection USP, B. Braun Medical Inc.:"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."
B. Braun Medical Inc. Irvine, CA USA 92614-5895


Legal Issues, Considerations:

Intravenous Drug Therapy Medication Scheduling:"Category I" means single-dose injections of intravenous fluids, including saline, Ringer's lactate, five per cent dextrose and distilled water, and other intravenous fluids or parenteral solutions included in this category by rule of the board of pharmacy, that have a volume of one hundred milliliters or more and that contain no added substances, or single-dose injections of epinephrine to be administered pursuant to sections 4765.38 and 4765.39 of the Revised Code."
