INTRALIPID 20% ( A 20% Intravenous Fat Emulsion) is indicated as a source of calories and essential fatty acids for patients requiring parenteral nutrition for extended periods of time (usually for more than 5 days) and as a source of essential fatty acids for prevention of Essential Fatty Acid Deficiency (EFAD).

Intralipid 20% (A 20% I.V. Fat Emulsion) is a sterile, non-pyrogenic fat emulsion intended as a source of calories and essential fatty acids for use in a pharmacy admixture program. It is made up of 20% Soybean Oil, 1.2% Egg Yolk Phospholipids, 2.25% Glycerin, and Water for Injection. In addition, sodium hydroxide has been added to adjust the pH so that the final product pH is 8. pH range is 6 to 8.9.

Intralipid 20% is not intended for direct infusion. It is a sterile dosage form which contains several single doses for use in the preparation of three-in-one or total nutrient admixtures (TNAs) in a pharmacy admixture program.

Intralipid is metabolized and utilized as a source of energy causing an increase in heat production, decrease in respiratory quotient and increase in oxygen consumption. The infused fat particles are cleared from the blood stream in a manner thought to be comparable to the clearing of chylomicrons.

Intralipid will prevent the biochemical lesions of essential fatty acid deficiency (EFAD), and correct the clinical manifestations of the EFAD syndrome.

INDICATIONS AND USAGE: Intralipid 20% is indicated for use in a pharmacy admixture program for the preparation of three-in-one or total nutrition admixtures (TNAs) to provide a source of calories and essential fatty acids for patients requiring parenteral nutrition for extended periods of time (usually for more than 5 days) and a source of essential fatty acids for prevention of EFAD.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Intralipid 20% (A 20% I.V. Fat Emulsion) should be administered only as a part of a three-in-one or total nutrient admixture via peripheral vein or by central venous infusion.

Directions For Proper Use: INTRALIPID 20% IS NOT INTENDED FOR DIRECT INFUSION. The container closure may be penetrated only once using a suitable sterile transfer device or dispensing set which allows measured dispensing of the contents. The Pharmacy Bulk Package is to be used only in a suitable work area such as a laminar flow hood (or an equivalent clean air compounding area). Once the closure is penetrated, the contents should be dispensed as soon as possible; the transfer of contents to suitable TPN admixture containers must be completed within 4 hours of closure penetration. The bag should be stored below 25°C (77°F) after the closure has been entered. Admixtures made using Intralipid 20% should be used promptly.
