Sodium Lactate Injection, USP, 50 mEq (5 mEq/mL) is a sterile, nonpyrogenic, concentrated solution of sodium lactate (sodium lactate injection in aviva) in Water for Injection for additive use only after dilution by intravenous route as an electrolyte replen-isher and systemic alkalizer. It should not be administered undiluted.
Sodium lactate (sodium lactate injection in aviva) is chemically designated as propanoic acid, 2-hydroxy-,monosodium salt and has the following structural formula:
A 60% aqueous solution is miscible in water.
Each mLcontains: Sodium lactate (sodium lactate injection in aviva) anhydrous 560 mg (5 mEq each of Na+ and lactate
anion); Water for Injection q.s. Hydrochloric acid and/ or sodium hydroxide
for pH adjustment.
The solution contains no bacteriostat, antimicrobial agent or added buffer. The osmolar concentration is 10 mOsmol/mL (calc.). When diluted with Sterile Water for Injection to make a 1/6 molar solution, the pH of sodium lactate (sodium lactate injection in aviva) solution lies between 6.0 and 7.3.
