PLASMA-LYTE 56

Overview

What is PLASMA-LYTE 56?

PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) is a sterile, nonpyrogenic, hypotonic solution in a single dose container for intravenous administration. Each 100 mL contains 234 mg of Sodium Chloride, USP (NaCl); 128 mg of Potassium Acetate, USP (CHKO); and 32 mg of Magnesium Acetate Tetrahydrate (Mg(CHO)•4HO). It contains no antimicrobial agents. The pH is adjusted with hydrochloric acid. The pH is 5.5 (4.0 to 8.0).

PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) administered intravenously has value as a source of water and electrolytes. One liter has an ionic concentration of 40 mEq sodium, 13 mEq potassium, 3 mEq magnesium, 40 mEq chloride, and 16 mEq acetate. The osmolarity is 111 mOsmol/L (calc). Normal physiologic osmolarity range is approximately 280 to 310 mOsmol/L. Administration of substantially hypertonic solutions may cause vein damage.

The VIAFLEX plastic container is fabricated from a specially formulated polyvinyl chloride (PL 146 Plastic). The amount of water that can permeate from inside the container into the overwrap is insufficient to affect the solution significantly. Solutions in contact with the plastic container can leach out certain of its chemical components in very small amounts within the expiration period, e.g., di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), up to 5 parts per million. However, the safety of the plastic has been confirmed in tests in animals according to USP biological tests for plastic containers as well as by tissue culture toxicity studies.

What are the warnings of PLASMA-LYTE 56?

Prolonged use of corticosteroids may produce posterior subcapsular cataracts, glaucoma with possible damage to the optic nerves, and may enhance the establishment of secondary ocular infections due to fungi or viruses.

PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) should be used with great care, if at all, in patients with congestive heart failure, severe renal insufficiency and in clinical states in which there exists edema with sodium retention.

PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) should be used with great care, if at all, in patients with hyperkalemia, severe renal failure and in conditions in which potassium retention is present.

PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) should be used with great care in patients with metabolic or respiratory alkalosis. The administration of acetate ions should be done with great care in those conditions in which there is an increased level or an impaired utilization of these ions, such as severe hepatic insufficiency.

PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) should not be administered simultaneously with blood through the same administration set because of the possibility of hemolysis.

The intravenous administration of PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) can cause fluid and/or solute overloading resulting in dilution of serum electrolyte concentrations, overhydration, congested states or pulmonary edema. The risk of dilutional states is inversely proportional to the electrolyte concentrations of the injection. The risk of solute overload causing congested states with peripheral and pulmonary edema is directly proportional to the electrolyte concentrations of the injection.

In patients with diminished renal function, administration of PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) may result in sodium or potassium retention.


What are the precautions of PLASMA-LYTE 56?

Clinical evaluation and periodic laboratory determinations are necessary to monitor changes in fluid balance, electrolyte concentrations and acid base balance during prolonged parenteral therapy or whenever the condition of the patient warrants such evaluation.

PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) should be used with caution. Excess administration may result in metabolic alkalosis.

Caution must be exercised in the administration of PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) to patients receiving corticosteroids or corticotropin.

Pregnancy

Pediatric Use

Safety and effectiveness of PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) in pediatric patients have not been established by adequate and well controlled trials, however, the use of electrolyte solutions in the pediatric population is referenced in the medical literature. The warnings, precautions and adverse reactions identified in the label copy should be observed in the pediatric population.

Geriatric Use

Clinical studies of PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) did not include sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 and over to determine whether they respond differently from younger subjects. Other reported clinical experience has not identified differences in responses between the elderly and younger patients. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or drug therapy.

Do not administer unless solution is clear and seal is intact.


What are the side effects of PLASMA-LYTE 56?

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.


What should I look out for while using PLASMA-LYTE 56?

Clinical Pharmacology

PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) has value as a source of water and electrolytes. It is capable of inducing diuresis depending on the clinical condition of the patient.

PLASMA-LYTE 56 Injection (Multiple Electrolytes Injection, Type 1, USP) produces a metabolic alkalinizing effect. Acetate ions are metabolized ultimately to carbon dioxide and water, which requires the consumption of hydrogen cations.

Antidiabetic drug requirements, i.e., insulin, may be altered in association with the use of Diethylpropion hydrochloride and the concomitant dietary regimen. Concurrent use with general anesthetics may result in arrhythmias. The presser effects of diethylpropion and those of other drugs may be additive when the drugs are used concomitantly; conversely, diethylpropion may interfere with antihypertensive drugs, i.e., guanethidine, a-methyldopa. Concurrent use of phenothiazines may antagonize the anorectic effect of diethylpropion.

Clinical evaluation and periodic laboratory determinations are necessary to monitor changes in fluid balance, electrolyte concentrations and acid base balance during prolonged parenteral therapy or whenever the condition of the patient warrants such evaluation.
