ABSTRACT
Objective
Standardization and systematization of data to provide quick access to compatibility of leading injectable drugs used in hospitals for parenteral nutrition.
Methods
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.
Results
After analysis, relevant information to the product’s compatibility with parental nutrition was summarized in a table.
Conclusion
Systematization of compatibility data provided quick and easy access, and enabled standardizing pharmacists work.
