In Depth Information on Ringer Lactate Infusion

Expert advice for Sodium Chloride

  • Your electrolyte levels in blood and other parameters (such as blood pressure etc.) will be monitored regularly as you receive intravenous sodium chloride.
  • Tell your doctor if you have disorders of the kidneys, lungs, problems of the heart related to impaired pumping of blood (congestive cardiac disorders), high blood pressure or pregnancy-related blood pressure problems (pre-eclampsia), fluid retention problems  or swelling in hands, ankles or feet.
  • Seek immediate medical attention if you experience any unwanted swelling, trouble in breathing, muscle cramps, and/or weakness, fits, nausea, vomiting or stomach pain.
  • Tell your doctor if you are or planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
  • Do not take if you are allergic to sodium chloride or any of its ingredients.
  • Do not give to patients with excess fluid or sodium in the space outside body cells (extracellular hyper hydration or hypervolemia).
  • Do not give to patients with abnormally low levels of sodium or chloride in blood (hyponatremia, hypochloremia), fluid and sodium retention problems or edema (swelling).
  • Do not give to patients with congestive heart failure (heart failure resulting in fluid build-up in lungs and other body tissues), severe liver and kidney functioning problems.

Expert advice for Sodium Lactate

  • Do not use sodium lactate for the treatment of lactic acidosis (characterized by low pH in body tissues and blood) or severe metabolic acidosis (condition when the body produces excessive quantities of acid or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body) or for treatment of severe potassium deficiency.
  • Seek immediate medical attention in case of fluid overloading resulting in electrolyte imbalances, overhydration, congested states, pulmonary edema or acid-base imbalance.
  • Exercise caution in patients with alkalosis or at risk for alkalosis (an excessively alkaline condition of the body fluids or tissues, which may cause weakness or cramp), patients with severe kidney impairment, hypervolemia (fluid overload), overhydration, or conditions that may cause sodium retention, fluid overload, or edema.
  • Tell your doctor if you are or planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
  • Do not take if patient is allergic to sodium lactate or any of its ingredients.
  • Do not take if patients with hypervolemia, severe kidney insufficiency, uncompensated heart failure, hyperkalemia (high serum potassium concentration), hypercalcaemia ((high serum calcium concentration), metabolic alkalosis, ascitic cirrhosis (accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity).
  • Do not take patients with conditions associated with increased lactate levels (hyperlactatemia) including lactic acidosis, or impaired lactate utilization, such as severe liver insufficiency and patients taking concomitant digitalis therapy.

Expert advice for Potassium Chloride

  • The concentration of intravenous infusion solution should not exceed 3.2 g (43 mmol)/l.
  • Do not take potassium chloride if you have kidney, heart problems, high blood pressure or high blood potassium level.
  • Avoid using potassium chloride, if you have Addison disease (adrenal gland disorder); severe tissue injury such as burn; severe dehydration, blockage of stomach or intestine or diarrhea from long time.
