The Use Of Drugs For Intravenous Fluids?
Good morning ,, I want to ask this .. A week ago there was an IV, so the IV was added with a new one and there was left over … Is the NACL liquid still usable ??
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
NaCl liquid that has been used for infusion may have the risk of exposure to contaminant microorganisms in the environment because the seal of the packaging cover is already open. The risk of exposure is increased if the storage is also less hygienic. It is not recommended to reuse fluids that have been opened a week before for intravenous fluids.
The administration of intravenous fluids also needs to be based on the individual needs of the patient, for example the patient's age and body weight, the patient's general condition, illness or disorder, the condition of the heart and kidneys. The type and volume of fluid must be determined by the doctor in charge of the patient. Therefore, the use of intravenous fluid therapy is not recommended if without supervision by a doctor who treats patients directly. Do not hesitate to consult directly with the doctor who handles the patient regarding the need or not the administration of intravenous fluid therapy.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
