PATIENT CARE CONSIDERATIONS


Drug Side Effects ::

 Adverse Reactions

CV: Cardiac fibrillation. DERM: Hypersensitivity reactions, including urticaria and anaphylactic-like reactions.

Drug Mode of Action ::  

 Action Hydrolyzes hyaluronic acid to temporarily decrease viscosity of cellular cement and promote diffusion of injected fluids, localized transudates or exudates, thus facilitating their absorption.

Drug Interactions ::

 Interactions

Local anesthesia: Hastens onset of analgesia and tends to reduce swelling caused by local infiltration. Under spread of local anesthetic, solution increases absorption of drug, which shortens duration of action of drug and tends to increase incidence of systemic reaction. INCOMPATIBILITIES: Do not add to solution containing another drug without consulting appropriate references for chemical or physical incompatibilities.

Drug Assesment ::
