Compatibility: drugs and parenteral nutrition
Standardization and systematization of data to provide quick access to compatibility of leading injectable drugs used in hospitals for parenteral nutrition.
We selected 55 injectable drugs analyzed individually with two types of parenteral nutrition: 2-in-1 and 3-in-1. The following variables were considered: active ingredient, compatibility of drugs with the parenteral nutrition with or without lipids, and maximum drug concentration after dilution for the drugs compatible with parenteral nutrition. Drugs were classified as compatible, incompatible and untested.
After analysis, relevant information to the product’s compatibility with parental nutrition was summarized in a table.
Systematization of compatibility data provided quick and easy access, and enabled standardizing pharmacists work.
