INDICATIONS

NORMOCARB HF™, after dilution, is indicated in adult and pediatric patients for use as a replacement solution in Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) to replace water and to correct electrolytes and acid-base imbalance.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Important Preparation Information

NORMOCARB HF™ MUST BE DILUTED BEFORE USE. Dilute only with Sterile Water for Injection. For dilution, one 240 mL vial of NORMOCARB HF™ should be added to 3 Liters of Sterile Water for Injection to make 3.24 Liters of infusate solution. Shake to mix by rocking or rolling the bag and contents thoroughly. Additives can be introduced after initial dilution (see Additives below).

Individualization of Treatment

Pre- or Post-Filter: The volume of solution (diluted NORMOCARB HF™) administered will depend upon the fluid balance of the individual patient, the target fluid balance to be achieved, the body weight and the amount of fluid removed from the patient's circulation during the hemofiltration process. When administered post-filter, the replacement rate should not be greater than one third of the blood flow rate; e.g., for blood flow of 100 mL per min, equivalent to 6000 mL per hour, post-filter replacement rate should not exceed 2000 mL per hour.

Administration

Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. NORMOCARB HF™ must not be used if a precipitate has been formed or if container seals have been damaged.

Table 1 describes the components of diluted NORMOCARB HF™ 25 and NORMOCARB HF™ 35 solutions when prepared as directed.

Diluted NORMOCARB HF™ should be used within 24 hours. It may be stored at normal room temperature or refrigerated (2° to 30°C). Do not freeze infusate solution or expose to excessive heat.

Additives

When introducing additives, use aseptic techniques.

Potassium: Potassium chloride up to 4 mEq per Liter may be added to the diluted solution.

Calcium: Calcium chloride up to 1.25 mMol per Liter (2.5 mEq per Liter) may be added to the diluted solution.

Glucose: Up to 12 mL of D50W may be added to the diluted solution to provide a concentration of up to 10.2 mMol per Liter of dextrose.

Phosphate: Potassium phosphate up to 1.2 mMol per Liter (2.4 mEq per Liter) may be added to the diluted solution. The total potassium concentration should not exceed 4 mEq per Liter.

Drugs should not be added to NORMOCARB HF™.

WARNINGS

Included as part of the PRECAUTIONS section.

PRECAUTIONS

Serious Electrolyte, Acid-base, Glucose and Fluid Imbalances

Fluid imbalance and electrolyte, acid-base, and glucose disturbances can occur during therapy. The patient's hemodynamic status, and fluid, electrolyte, glucose and acid-base balance should be monitored throughout the procedure.

Use In Specific Populations

Preganancy

Pregnancy Category C

NORMOCARB HF™ is a replacement solution of electrolytes and bicarbonate and is pharmacologically inactive. Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with NORMOCARB HF™. While there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women, appropriate administration of NORMOCARB HF™ with monitoring of fluid, electrolyte, acid-base and glucose balance, is not expected to cause fetal harm, or affect reproductive capacity. Maintenance of normal acid-base balance is important for fetal well being.

Nursing Mothers

NORMOCARB HF™ is a replacement solution of electrolytes and bicarbonate and is pharmacologically inactive. The components of NORMOCARB HF™ are excreted in human milk. Appropriate administration of NORMOCARB HF™ with monitoring of fluid, electrolyte, acid-base and glucose balance is not expected to harm a nursing infant.

Pediatric Use

No adequate and well-controlled studies have been conducted with NORMOCARB HF™ in adult or pediatric patients. Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients newborn to 17 years of age were based on eight non-controlled published pediatric studies and one published pediatric scientific literature review. The exact composition of the buffer and electrolytes in the solution during CRRT were not described in adult or pediatric studies; however, plasma electrolyte levels were similar between adults and children.

Geriatric Use

No adequate and well-controlled studies have been conducted with NORMOCARB HF™ in elderly patients.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Mechanism of Action

NORMOCARB HF™ is a pharmacologically inactive solution. The concentrations of electrolytes are chosen to help to restore plasma levels to physiological concentrations.

NORMOCARB HF™ is used as replacement solution to replace water and electrolytes removed during hemofiltration and hemodiafiltration.

Bicarbonate in the solution is used as an alkalinizing buffer to normalize acid-base balance.
