Calcium Chloride Intravenous Infusion 10% w/v 10mL Prefilled Syringe News

Any medical emergency, especially a heart attack, can be scary—not only for the victim but for his or her family as well.

As doctors treat you, you expect their medications to be safe and effective. Sometimes certain products on the marketplace have issues associated with them. This is why the FDA monitors drugs and removes the bad ones from the marketplace.

But what about the ones that were already administered or taken?

Recently, Mylan Institutional took their Calcium Chloride Intravenous Infusion 10% w/v 10mL Prefilled Syringe off of the market due to safety issues. You or your loved one may have been given this after suffering a heart attack. Calcium chloride intravenous infusion prefilled syringes are a potentially lifesaving treatment. But the fact that the manufacturer has recalled this life-saving drug should be a cause for concern.

Are Calcium Chloride Intravenous Infusion Prefilled Syringes Safe?

Mylan Institutional recalled their Calcium Chloride Intravenous Infusion 10% w/v 10mL Prefilled Syringe due to difficulties in the administering action of the drug. Part of this reason is because the syringe in question and some needleless adaptors are not compatible.

Calcium chloride intravenous infusion prefilled syringes are still used in emergency situations for resuscitation after cardiac arrest. When administered correctly, the side effects are minimal. There may be cause for concern regarding Mylan Institutional’s product, though.

Additionally, doctors may use them to treat patients with a calcium deficiency.

Calcium Chloride Intravenous Infusion Prefilled Syringes’ Side Effects

The incompatibility of Mylan Institutional’s Calcium Chloride Intravenous Infusion 10% w/v 10mL Prefilled Syringe with needleless adapters might cause death. These prefilled syringes are used in emergency situations that need flawless and quick execution. If the product supplied by Mylan Institutional does not work as expected, the complications can be severe.

Non-deadly side effects include tingling sensations, a taste of calcium in the mouth, as well as an increased heat sensation on the body. There may also be a moderate fall in blood pressure when these syringes.

Has a doctor given you or someone you love this product, whether it be after a heart attack or because of low calcium levels in the body? If you or your loved one experienced any negative side effects, you should speak with a lawyer. You might need legal action due to the problems with Mylan Institutional’s product.

Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes News

The US Food and Drug Administration recently announced a voluntary field action on the Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes, citing possible defects in the product. The voluntary field action for the product was carried out by Physio-Control, one of the leading defibrillator manufacturers in the country, although the product in question was manufactured by Cardinal Health. The FDA has since classified the voluntary field action as a Class 1 recall based on the artwork depiction of incorrect placement of defibrillation electrodes.

The FDA went further to state that these defibrillation electrodes, manufactured by Cardinal Health, don’t have any functional or performance defects. The only problem with these defibrillation electrodes is in their packaging, where the manufacturer displays the incorrect electrode placement on the infant’s body. These defibrillation electrodes are part of the components of Cardinal Health’s Lifepak automated external defibrillators.
