    The VIAFLEX Plus plastic container is fabricated from a specially formulated polyvinyl chloride (PL 146 Plastic). VIAFLEX Plus on the container indicates the presence of a drug additive in a drug vehicle. The VIAFLEX Plus plastic container system utilizes the same container as the VIAFLEX plastic container system. 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.

  • CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

    Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP have value as a source of water, electrolytes, and calories. It is capable of inducing diuresis depending on the clinical condition of the patient.

    Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP produce a metabolic alkalinizing effect. Lactate ions are metabolized ultimately to carbon dioxide and water, which requires the consumption of hydrogen cations.

  • INDICATIONS AND USAGE

    Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP are indicated as a source of water, electrolytes, and calories or as alkalinizing agents.

  • CONTRAINDICATIONS

    Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP is contraindicated in:

    Newborns (≤ 28 days of age), receiving concomitant treatment with ceftriaxone, even if separate infusion lines are used due to the risk of fatal ceftriaxone-calcium salt precipitation in the neonate’s bloodstream.
    In patients older than 28 days, including adults, administered ceftriaxone simultaneously through the same infusion line (e.g., via Y-connector). If the same infusion line is used for sequential administration, the line must be thoroughly flushed between infusions with a compatible fluid.
    Patients with a known hypersensitivity to sodium lactate (see WARNINGS).
    Patients with hyperkalemia (see WARNINGS).
  • WARNINGS

    Hypersensitivity Reactions

    Hypersensitivity and infusion reactions have been reported with Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP (see ADVERSE REACTIONS). Stop the infusion immediately if any signs or symptoms of a suspected hypersensitivity reaction develop. Appropriate therapeutic countermeasures must be instituted as clinically indicated.

    Electrolyte Imbalances

    Fluid Overload

    Depending on the volume and rate of infusion, the intravenous administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP can cause electrolyte disturbances such as overhydration and congested states, including pulmonary congestion and edema. Avoid Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients with or at risk for fluid and/or solute overloading. If use cannot be avoided, monitor fluid balance, electrolyte concentrations and acid base balance, as needed and especially during prolonged use.

    Hyperglycemia and Hyperosmolar Hyperglycemic State

    Administration of solutions containing dextrose and lactate in patients with impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes mellitus may worsen hyperglycemia (see PRECAUTIONS, Pediatric Use). Administration of dextrose at a rate exceeding the patient’s utilization rate may lead to hyperglycemia, coma, and death.

    Hyperglycemia is associated with an increase in serum osmolality, resulting in osmotic diuresis, dehydration and electrolyte losses.

    Patients with underlying central nervous system disease and renal impairment who receive dextrose infusions, may be at greater risk of developing hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state.

    Monitor blood glucose concentrations and treat hyperglycemia to maintain concentrations within normal limits while administering Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP. Insulin may be administered or adjusted to maintain optimal blood glucose concentrations.

    Hyperkalemia

    Potassium-containing solutions, including Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP may increase the risk of hyperkalemia.

    Patients at increased risk of developing hyperkalemia include those:

    With conditions predisposing to hyperkalemia and/or associated with increased sensitivity to potassium, such as patients with severe renal impairment, acute dehydration, extensive tissue injury or burns, certain cardiac disorders such as congestive heart failure.
    Treated concurrently or recently with agents or products that cause or increase the risk of hyperkalemia (see PRECAUTIONS).

    Avoid use of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients with, or at risk for, hyperkalemia. If use cannot be avoided, monitor serum potassium concentrations.

    To avoid life threatening hyperkalemia, do not administer Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP as an intravenous push (i.e., intravenous injection manually with a syringe connected to the intravenous access) without a quantitative infusion device.

    Alkalosis

    Because lactate is metabolized to bicarbonate, administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP may result in, or worsen, metabolic alkalosis. Avoid Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients with alkalosis or at risk for alkalosis.

    Hyponatremia

    Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP may cause hyponatremia. Glucose intravenous infusions are usually isotonic solutions. In the body, however, glucose containing fluids can become extremely physiologically hypotonic due to rapid glucose metabolization. Monitoring of serum sodium is particularly important for hypotonic fluids.

    Hyponatremia can lead to acute hyponatremic encephalopathy characterized by headache, nausea, seizures, lethargy, and vomiting. Patients with brain edema are at particular risk of severe, irreversible and life-threatening brain injury.

    The risk of hospital-acquired hyponatremia is increased in patients with cardiac or pulmonary failure, and in patients with non-osmotic vasopressin release (including SIADH) treated with high volume of hypotonic Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP.

    The risk for hyponatremia is increased in pediatric patients, elderly patients, postoperative patients, those with psychogenic polydipsia, and in patients treated with medications that increase the risk of hyponatremia (such as diuretics, certain antiepileptic and psychotropic medications). See PRECAUTIONS, Drug Interactions and Pediatric Use.

    Patients at increased risk for developing complications of hyponatremia such as hyponatremic encephalopathy, include pediatric patients, women (in particular, premenopausal women), patients with hypoxemia, and patients with underlying central nervous system disease. Avoid Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients with or at risk for hyponatremia. If use cannot be avoided, monitor serum sodium concentrations.

    Rapid correction of hyponatremia is potentially dangerous with risk of serious neurologic complications. Brain adaptations reducing risk of cerebral edema make the brain vulnerable to injury when chronic hyponatremia is too rapidly corrected, which is known as osmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS). To avoid complications, monitor serum sodium and chloride concentrations, fluid status, acid-base balance, and signs of neurologic complications.

  • PRECAUTIONS

    Patients with Renal Impairment

    Administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients with or at risk of severe renal impairment, may result in hyperkalemia and/or fluid overload (see WARNINGS). Avoid Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients with severe renal impairment or conditions that may cause sodium and/or potassium retention, fluid overload, or edema. If use cannot be avoided, monitor patients with severe renal impairment for development of these adverse reactions.

    Patients with Hepatic Impairment

    In patients with severe hepatic impairment, lactate metabolism may be impaired and Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP may not produce alkalization. Consider when monitoring serum lactate levels.

    Hypercalcemia

    Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP contains calcium salts and may cause hypercalcemia. Avoid administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients with hypercalcemia or conditions predisposing to hypercalcemia; and in patients with calcium renal calculi or history of such calculi.

    Vein Thrombosis

    Use a peripheral vein if the final dextrose concentration is 5% or less and the osmolality is approximately less than 900 mOsm/L. Consider central vein administration of hypertonic solutions with osmolarity of 900 mOsmol or more to avoid venous irritation, including phlebitis. Monitoring of Serum Lactate Levels

    Administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP may result in an iatrogenic increase in serum lactate levels and interfere with interpretation of serum lactate levels in patients with severe metabolic acidosis including lactic acidosis.

    Drug Interactions

    Ceftriaxone

    For information on interaction with ceftriaxone – see CONTRAINDICATIONS

    Other Products that Cause Hyperkalemia

    Administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP to patients treated concurrently or recently with products that are associated with hyperkalemia increases the risk of severe and potentially fatal hyperkalemia, in particular in the presence of other risk factors for hyperkalemia.

    Avoid use of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP to patients receiving such products (e.g., potassium sparing diuretics, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor antagonists, or the immunosuppressants tacrolimus and cyclosporine). If use cannot be avoided, monitor serum potassium concentrations.

    Other Products that Affect Fluid and/or Electrolyte Balance

    Administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP to patients treated concomitantly with drugs associated with sodium and fluid retention may increase the risk of hypernatremia and volume overload. Avoid use of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients receiving such products, such as corticosteroids or corticotropin. If use cannot be avoided, monitor serum electrolytes, fluid balance and acid-base balance.

    Other Drugs that Increase the Risk of Hyponatremia

    Administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP to patients treated concomitantly with medications associated with hyponatremia may increase the risk of developing hyponatremia.

    Avoid use of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients receiving products, such as diuretics, and certain antiepileptic and psychotropic medications. Drugs that increase the vasopressin effect reduce renal electrolyte free water excretion and may also increase the risk of hyponatremia following treatment with intravenous fluids. If use cannot be avoided, monitor serum sodium concentrations.

    Lithium

    Renal sodium and lithium clearance may be increased during administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP. Avoid use of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients receiving lithium. If use cannot be avoided, monitor serum lithium concentrations during concomitant use.

    Digoxin

    Administration of calcium may increase the effects of digitalis and lead to serious or fatal cardiac arrhythmia. In patients treated with digoxin, consider reducing the volume, and/or rate of administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP.

    Other Drugs that Increase the Risk of Hypercalcemia

    Avoid Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in patients treated with thiazide diuretics or vitamin D, as these can increase the risk of hypercalcemia.

    Drugs with pH Dependent Renal Elimination

    Due to the alkalinizing action of lactate (formation of bicarbonate), Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP may interfere with the elimination of drugs with pH dependent renal elimination. Renal clearance of acidic drugs may be increased. Renal clearance of alkaline drugs may be decreased.

    Pregnancy

    There are no adequate, well-controlled studies with Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in pregnant women and animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with this drug. Therefore, it is not known whether Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP should be given during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.

    Labor and Delivery

    Intrapartum maternal intravenous infusion of glucose-containing solutions may produce maternal hyperglycemia with subsequent fetal hyperglycemia and fetal metabolic acidosis as well as rebound hypoglycemia in the neonate. Fetal hyperglycemia can result in increased fetal insulin levels which may result in neonatal hypoglycemia following delivery. Consider the potential risks and benefits for each specific patient before administering Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP.

    Nursing Mothers

    It is not known whether this drug is present in human milk. Because many drugs are present in human milk, caution should be exercised when Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP is administered to a nursing mother.

    Pediatric Use

    The use of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP in pediatric patients is based on clinical practice (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).

    Neonates, especially premature infants with low birth weight, are at increased risk of developing hypo-or hyperglycemia and therefore need close monitoring during treatment with intravenous glucose solutions to ensure adequate glycemic control in order to avoid potential long-term adverse effects.

    Closely monitor plasma electrolyte concentrations in pediatric patients who may have impaired ability to regulate fluids and electrolytes. In very low birth weight infants, excessive or rapid administration of Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP may result in increased serum osmolality and risk of intracerebral hemorrhage.

    Children (including neonates and older children) are at increased risk of developing hyponatremia as well as for developing hyponatremic encephalopathy.

    Administration of a lactate-containing intravenous solution to infants should take into account that the liver and kidneys are still maturing during the first year of life, which also affects the biotransformation and renal excretion of lactate.

    Geriatric Use

    Geriatric patients are at increased risk of developing electrolyte imbalances. Potassium Chloride in Lactated Ringer’s and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP is known to be substantially excreted by the kidney, and the risk of toxic reactions to this drug may be greater in patients with impaired renal function. Therefore, 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 other drug therapy. Consider monitoring renal function in elderly patients.
