Description: 

BSS Sterile Irrigating Solution is a sterile balanced salt solution, each mL containing sodium chloride (NaCl) 0.64%, potassium chloride (KCl) 0.075%, calcium chloride dihydrate (CaCl2 2H2O) 0.048%, magnesium chloride hexahydrate (MgCl2 6H2O) 0.03%, sodium acetate trihydrate (C2H3NaO2 3H2O) 0.39%, sodium citrate dihydrate (C6H5Na3O7 2H2O) 0.17%, sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid (to adjust pH), and water for injection. The pH is approximately 7.5. The osmolality is approximately 300 mOsm/Kg.

Clinical Pharmacology: 

BSS Sterile Irrigating Solution is an isotonic solution for use in irrigating tissues of the eyes.

Indications And Usage: 

For use as an extraocular and intraocular irrigating solution during ocular surgical procedure involving perfusion of the eye with an expected maximum duration of less than 60 minutes.

Warnings: 

  • NOT FOR INJECTION OR INTRAVENOUS INFUSION.
  • Do not use unless product is clear, seal is intact, and container is undamaged.
  • Do not use if product is discolored or contains a precipitate.
  • SINGLE patient use only. The contents of this bag should not be used in more than one patient.
  • This solution contains no preservative, unused contents should be discarded.

Precautions: 

Open under aseptic conditions only.
Prior to use, check the following: tip should be firmly in place, irrigating needle should be properly seated; squeeze out several drops before inserting into anterior chamber. The needle should be removed from the anterior chamber prior to releasing pressure to prevent suction.

Studies suggest that intraocular irrigating solutions which are iso-osmotic with normal aqueous fluids should be used with caution in diabetic patients undergoing vitrectomy since intraoperative lens changes have been observed.

There have been reports of corneal clouding and edema following ocular surgery in which BSS Sterile Irrigating Solution was used as an irrigating solution.

Adverse Reactions 

Irrigation or any other trauma to the corneal endothelium may result in corneal swelling or bullous keratopathy.

Post-operative inflammatory reactions as well as incidents of corneal edema and corneal decompensation have been reported.
