How Sodium Chloride Irrigation Solution is used
Your doctor or nurse will normally use the irrigation to wash and clean body cavities, tissues or wounds. It is also used to dilute other medicines such as inhalation solutions. It is for external use only and should not be injected or swallowed.
Your doctor or nurse will decide how much of the irrigation to use which will be sufficient for your needs. As the irrigation solution is sterile, your doctor or nurse will use a new solution each time.
If you are given this product to use at home it must be used as directed by your doctor or nurse. Use a new solution each time. Discard the unused portion.
This rarely happens as Sodium Chloride Irrigation Solution is administered under the care of a highly trained doctor or nurse. As it is for external use only, it is unlikely an overdose will occur.
Immediately telephone your doctor or go to your nearest hospital emergency department if you think that someone may have drunk Sodium Chloride Irrigation Solution even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning.
Sodium Chloride Irrigation Solution contains sodium chloride 0.9% in Water for Injections. It does not contain a preservative.
