DESCRIPTION SECTION.


DESCRIPTION BSS Sterile Irrigating Solution is a sterile balanced salt solution, each mL containing sodium chloride (NaCl) 0.64%, potassium chloride (KCl) 0.075%, calcium chloride dihydrate (CaCl22H2O) 0.048%, magnesium chloride hexahydrate (MgCl26H2O) 0.03%, sodium acetate trihydrate (C2H3NaO23H2O) 0.39%, sodium citrate dihydrate (C6H5Na3O72H2O) 0.17%, sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid (to adjust pH), and water for injection. The pH is approximately 7.5. The osmolality is approximately 300 mOsm/Kg.

PRECAUTIONS SECTION.


PRECAUTIONS Open under aseptic conditions only. Prior to use, check the following: tip should be firmly in place, irrigating needle should be properly seated; squeeze out several drops before inserting into anterior chamber. The needle should be removed from the anterior chamber prior to releasing pressure to prevent suction. Studies suggest that intraocular irrigating solutions which are iso-osmotic with normal aqueous fluids should be used with caution in diabetic patients undergoing vitrectomy since intraoperative lens changes have been observed. There have been reports of corneal clouding or edema following ocular surgery in which BSS Sterile Irrigating Solution was used as an irrigating solution.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY SECTION.


CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY BSS Sterile Irrigating Solution is an isotonic solution for use in irrigating tissues of the eyes.
