Indications and Usage for Dextrose and Sodium Chloride Injection

These solutions are contraindicated where the administration of sodium or chloride could be clinically detrimental.
Solutions containing dextrose may be contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to corn products.Warnings
The administration of intravenous solutions can cause fluid and/or solute overload resulting in dilution of serum electrolyte concentrations, overhydration, congested states or pulmonary edema. The risk of dilutional states is inversely proportional to the electrolyte concentration. The risk of solute overload causing congested states with peripheral and pulmonary edema is directly proportional to the electrolyte concentration.Geriatric Use
Clinical studies of Dextrose and Sodium Chloride Injections 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 elderly and younger patients.Overdosage
In the event of a fluid or solute overload during parenteral therapy, reevaluate the patient's condition and institute appropriate corrective treatment.
