Indications and Usage

PhysioSol Irrigation pH 7.4 is indicated for all general irrigation, washing and rinsing purposes which permit use of a sterile, nonpyrogenic electrolyte solution.PhysioSol Irrigation pH 7.4 is also indicated for use as an arthroscopic irrigating fluid with endoscopic instruments during arthroscopic procedures requiring distention and irrigation of the knee, shoulder, elbow or other bone joints.

This solution is not indicated for use with electrosurgical instruments.
Sterility -- The inability to produce children.

Pathological Dilatation -- The condition of an anatomical structure's being dilated beyond normal dimensions.

NOT FOR INJECTION.An electrolyte solution should not be used for irrigation during electrosurgical procedures.


NOT FOR INJECTION.Irrigating fluids have been demonstrated to enter the systemic circulation in relatively large volumes, thus, those irrigations must be regarded as a systemic drug. Absorption of large amounts can cause fluid and/or solute overloading resulting in dilution of serum electrolyte concentrations, overhydration, congested states or pulmonary edema.The risk of dilutional states is inversely proportional to the electrolyte concentrations of administered parenteral solutions.

The risk of solute overload causing congested states with peripheral and pulmonary edema is directly proportional to the electrolyte concentrations of such solutions.Do not heat container over 66°C (150°F).
