CLINIMIX Injections from Baxter Healthcare

CLINIMIX (amino acids in dextrose) injections and CLINIMIX E (amino acids with electrolytes in dextrose with calcium) injections from Baxter Healthcare are indicated as a source of calories and protein (and electrolytes in CLINIMIX E) for patients requiring parenteral nutrition when oral or enteral nutrition is not possible, insufficient, or contraindicated. Both CLINIMIX and CLINIMIX E may be used to treat negative nitrogen balance in patients.

IV Line Labels

Line Tracing Labels from Medi-Dose/EPS are designed to ease the process of labeling IV lines in any setting. Pharmacy simply places the entire label on an IV infusion container, and when the medication is administered at the bedside, nursing applies one line label to each end of the tubing. This facilitates easy line traces, improves accuracy, and helps minimize IV line confusion.

A series of new labels that draw attention to routes of administration is now available, alerting pharmacy and nursing to TPN, intrathecal lines, arterial lines, central lines, emergency drug ports, and feeding tubes. Additional line tracing labels have been developed for a variety of commonly used but potentially dangerous medications (including but not limited to: fentanyl, nitroglycerin, dopamine, and vecuronium). New general high-alert line tracing labels are now available in 100 formats, drugs, and styles. In addition, customizable line tracing labels allow facility-specific formats, and are compatible with laser or thermal printers.
