Using Bags for Bolus and Infusion

Instructions For using Intravia Bags

  • To open, first tear off foil overpouch. The plastic may be opaque due to moisture absorption during sterilization; the opacity will diminish gradually.
  • Check for leaks by squeezing the inner bag firmly; if any leaks are found or sterility is suspect then the solution should be discarded. Do not use unless the solution is clear and the seal is intact.
  • For intravenous use only. Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration whenever solution and container permit.
  • Do not use plastic containers in series connections. Such use can result in an air embolism.
