Intravenous Module™

Identifying compatibility problems encountered in compounding and dispensing of IV preparations.

The Intravenous Module can help clinicians avoid the compatibility problems frequently encountered in the compounding and dispensing of IV preparations, decrease the time spent investigating compatibilities manually, and eliminate speculation and costs associated with wasted solutions. Content is derived from the Handbook of Injectable Drugs by Lawrence A. Trissel, RPh, FASHP, and is maintained by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Also, with drugs-in-solution, total parenteral nutrition (TPN), Y-site, and drugs-in-syringe data, this module offers users extensive information on IV-drug compatibility.

FDB Intravenous Module Advantages:

  • Describes admixtures as compatible, incompatible, or equivocal based on the following criteria: compatibility, physical incompatibility, or chemical incompatibility/instability. Incompatibility studies using this module are strength-specific regarding solutions. Non-solution data are spread to all available strengths.
  • Contains data for intravenous administration (except when one or more drugs are in a syringe). This data can be applied to intramuscular and subcutaneous routes.
  • Methods of IV administration are identified (or another injection method in the case of syringe data) for every investigation.
  • Queries can be made of all possible solutions involved in a drug study, regardless of mode of administration.
  • Identifies compatible, incompatible, and equivocal results.
  • Associates the detail added to the test setting or results with compatibility tests.
