Has anyone tried sterile water injections for pain during labor?
This is a new one they are offering here. especially for back pain. Anyone try it? It's suppose to compare to an epidural.
Asked by Nona Rando 6 months ago.
Sterile water injections work by getting your body to produce it's own endorphins - a little like TENS or acupuncture. The response varies from person to person and the injections themselves feel a bit like a bee sting, but many women report reduced pain from contractions within 10 minutes. It's certainly worth trying as unlike an epidural, it's a low risk procedure which doesn't require you to be monitored or hooked up to an IV drip. This obviously leaves you free to move around in labour. The injections can be repeated when necessary. I'd certainly recommend giving it a try if your midwife is willing. There's nothing to stop you having a different kind of pain relief later in labour if needed. Best of luck! Answered by Breanne Afzal 6 months ago.
What is the difference between bacteriostatic water and sterile water for injection?
Asked by Zola Drager 6 months ago.
I'm going to assume you are referring to bacteriostatic water for injection (BWFI). They are both used for the same purpose, reconstituting and administering injectable medications. The difference is in the additive, usually a member of the paraben family or benzyl alcohol. This additive inhibits the growth of bacteria allowing for a vial to be entered multiple times. The Sterile Water for Injection (SWFI) has no such additive and once the required amount is withdrawn, the remainder is discarded. Answered by Mose Clayter 6 months ago.

Expired sterile water for injection?
I have a sealed single use sterile water for injection with 9mg of sodium chloride, however the expiration date on it was a long time ago, like 3 or 4 years. I was wondering if it was still good to use ( or IV ) or if by now it is contaminated. thanks in advance.
Asked by Billy Ott 6 months ago.
If it's expired, throw it away (or dispose of it in a biohazard bag). If you are a patient, don't be stupid and inject yourself with old solution. Even injecting yourself with water or air can cause a lethal reaction. If you are a care provider, you have no right to risk someone else's well-being by giving them an expired product. In either case, throw it away! Answered by Rolanda Kopel 6 months ago.
Hello, i have in no way heard of anything like this . I believe you've gotten been totally lie to. It sounds hazardous to me.

Sodium chloride is not the same as sterile water. It is better to discard expired products, especially those used for intravenous use. I would also make sure, if you're using this for reconstituting (when you get non-expired vials, that is), that you read the label on your medication. Some use sterile water for reconstitution and some use saline (sodium chloride). They are not necessarily interchangeable. Answered by Marvel Horovitz 6 months ago.
If it is 3 or 4 years PAST the expiry date why are you asking if it is still good? Throw it out. Answered by Brigitte Marbley 6 months ago.
Why would sterile water for injection be used in a tPN?
To change it from a peripheral TPN to a central TPN To dilute the dextrose to a desired concentration To increase the volume of the laminar flow To sterilize the solution through a 0.22-micron filter
Asked by Sueann Pince 6 months ago.
TPN is a mixture of protein, lipids (fats) and carbohydrates (dextrose) plus electrolytes (NaCl, KCl, KPO4, Mg, P, Ca and more). All of this is very concentrated and can damage the veins during infusion due to the high osmolality. Water is added to dilute the "ingredients" and also to provide water to the patient so they do not become dehydrated and receive adequate water. Answered by Corene Hernandez 6 months ago.
Tpn Injection Answered by Grady Boileau 6 months ago.
It could be to dilute the dextrose and other constituents. Contrentrated electrolytes, proteins, and dextrose can cause injury to to your vasculature or mess up you electrolyte balance. When a solution reaches a certain concentration you can't use a peripheral line as it can injure smaller veins. You can go with a more dilute solution, a bigger vein with higher flow, or both. Most go with both. Answered by Lizzette Zannini 6 months ago.
Is sterile water for injection Rx only?
According to my local pharmacy normal saline (0.9% NaCl) nonpyrogenic for injection is Rx only. I am curious as to why this is because its nothing more than sterile salt water.

Oh and if you're wondering what the inspiration for this question is, I have a close friend in substance abuse recovery who is battling addiction. Unfortunately she also has a rather strong predilection for needles and is wondering if she can inject saline or sterile water to satisfy the needle craving so she can battle her problems one at a time. Oh and yes I understand sterile water would be hypotonic without an appropriate amount of Sodium Chloride being added to reach an isotonic level. However, since the actual volumes will be rather minute she is just concerned with being able to use any non addictive and safe (read sterile, not tap water) liquid until she feels comfortable in kicking the needles too. Thank you all in advance. Answered by Georgia Pierrot 6 months ago.
The only reason I can think of for having it be RX only be due to the danger of unskilled people using the needles themselves. If you need a saline solution, do not try making one up yourself. Go to the pharmacy and pick up a bottle of it. It comes bottled, after all. Insure you do the correct calculations to make the saline the correct amount if it is not prebottled that way. It is imperative that the dosage is correct. If you already know about the terminology, I'm sure you understand... It can't be any worse than what she's been injecting before, right? I'm sure most of that stuff was not made with sterile water. Using needles in general is not a good idea and I will say I strongly recommend against it.. Just for the records so I can say I said it. Good luck... Answered by Sean Laborn 6 months ago.

Sterile water for injection and regular sterile water?
Can you inject regular sterile water not for injection. Instead of sterile water for injection.
Asked by Bobby Minugh 6 months ago.
The purity standards are different, plus read the lables. 'Sterile water for injuection' is likely to be electrolyte balanced. Pure water could be quite dangerous in any significant volume. Answered by Charley Whittaker 6 months ago.
NO! Sterile water for injection is pyrogen free. It's meant to be injected. It has nothing to do with being 'electrolyte balanced'. Answered by Leatrice Beilinson 6 months ago.
Either can be injected a street/drug situation with no harm as far sterility. One is safer long-term for intravenous use. Be safe. Answered by Vikki Duntley 6 months ago.
How to mix for subcutaneous injection?
volume of sterile water for injection required to mix for subcutaneous injection
Asked by Antwan Byland 6 months ago.
it depends on the volume of the powder you're mixing with the sterile water. Read the reconstitution directions. It will tell you specifically how much water to add. And don't forget to alcohol wipe the top of your vial before you do it. You don't want to introduce bacteria into the sterile vial. Answered by Isabel Cruea 6 months ago.
subcutaneous injections require very little of a diluent since it is being injected under to skin. total volume at most 1ml. Answered by Terrence Big 6 months ago.

Is saline (as in sterile contact saline) safer to use for IV injection than water?
If I were preparing a solution to inject intravenously would the best solvent to use be sterile pure saline contact solution (no soaps or any of that business ) or water ( tap, purified or distilled?) ?
Asked by Nakia Nockels 6 months ago.
You'd definitely want to use saline, but I don't think you want to use contact solution! These things have to be very carefully calculated so as not to upset your body's homeostasis. You've got to use a saline solution which is isotonic to your body's cells. Plain water is very, very bad idea. It would be hypotonic to your cells, meaning the solute concentration of the pure water would be lower than that of your cellular fluid. This could cause water to rush into your red blood cells, potentially making them lyse. It could also cause electrolytes to diffuse out of your cells and into the bloodstream.. not good.

In a pharmacy, is there a difference between distilled water and sterile water, or are they the same thing?
I am referring to the water used in reconstituting powdered medications for oral administration.
Asked by Hosea Kempster 6 months ago.
Sterile water for injection has to conform to official tests (like USP) for sterility, pyrogens, and even the type of packaging is restricted. Distilled water just has to be distilled, usually the first portion condensed is discarded as it has contaminants. Purified Water (USP) either has been distilled or obtained by ion-exchange treatment, has addtional standards applied to it. Water used in pharmaceutical preparations has to meet special standards, set by the USP or NF, several types of water are listed. Answered by Dorie Richards 6 months ago.

distilled water is water that has been boiled into a vapor and recondensed into a liquid, removing any solids and gasses. Sterile water is water that has no germs. Distilled water is by its nature also sterile, but sterile water can be made that way by any number of methods. Answered by Shaun Delgreco 6 months ago.
They're different...distilled water is just highly purified water. Sterile water is distilled water that's bottled then heated or autoclaved to kill any microorganisms so as not to cause infections. It's most likely used for when you have to mix a powdered drug for injections. Since you're taking oral medications, distilled water is probably fine. Answered by Soila Starratt 6 months ago.

For IM use add 11.5 mL sterile water for injection.
Asked by Milly Muszar 6 months ago.
your question is not worded clearly, but i'm going to assume that you have to reconstitute the 2 g vial with 11.5 mL of SWFI to get a total volume of 12 mL. in that case, a 0.5 mg dose would be contained in 3 mL of the reconstituted solution. Answered by Bridget Mccaffrey 6 months ago.
