is a sterile, nonpyrogenic, isotonic solution for parenteral fluid and electrolyte replenishment. Normosol-R is a solution of balanced electrolytes in water for injection. The solution is administered by intravenous infusion for parenteral replacement of acute losses of extracellular fluids. Normosol-R is indicated for replacement of acute extracellular fluid volume losses in surgery, trauma, burns or shock. Normosol-R can also be used as an adjunct to restore a decrease in circulatory volume in patients with moderate blood loss.
The solution contains no bacteriostat, antimicrobial agent or added buffer (except for pH adjustment) and is intended only for use as a single-dose injection. When smaller doses are required the unused portion should be discarded.
