Bacteriostatic Water Injection is a multi-dose sterile nonpyrogenic preparation of water. It is used to dissolve or dilute medications prior to injection. It comes in a multi-dose plastic vile and can be reused several times before it needs to be discarded. Bacteriostatic Water has a bacteriostatic preservative of 0.09% benzyl alcohol and is available in 25 x 30ml bottles. The benzyl alcohol helps suppresses and stops the growth of most potentially contaminating bacteria and allows repeated withdrawals to be made from a single vile.

How to use Bacteriostatic water:

  1. Using an alcohol pad, wipe the rubber stopper on the first vial.
  2. Pull back syringe plunger until the volume of air drawn into the syringe is the same as the volume to be withdrawn from the drug vial.
  3. Without inverting the vial, insert the needle into the top of the vial, making sure that the needle's bevel tip doesn't touch the solution.
  4. Inject the air into the vial and withdraw the needle. This step replaces air in the vial, thus preventing the creation of a partial vacuum on the withdrawal of the drug.
  5. With a new needle, repeat the step above for the second vial or empty mixing vial. Then, after injecting the air into the second vial, invert the vial, withdraw the prescribed dose, and then withdraw the needle.

Adverse drug reactions, and other complications, could arise if the wrong measurements or the wrong combination of medications are prepared and administered.

Make sure the needles bevel tip does not touch the solution when you are inserting the needle.
