Preservative-free Vials and Preserved, Multiple Dose Vials

Predicting EDTA Dose and Osmolarity of an IV Solution Using McGuff Software

EDTA Calculations

You can easily calculate the dose of Disodium EDTA needed for your patients. All you have to do is to enter the patient’s gender, age, weight, height, and creatinine level, and the software will give you an individualized dosage.

You can store the information in your computer and print out the information to be included in your patient’s chart.

Osmolarity of I.V. Solutions

I.V. solutions should be isotonic with plasma; otherwise you can experience some problems:

Hypertonic Fluids can result in:

  • An increase in extra cellular fluid volume resulting in circulatory overload
  • Dehydration of body cells
  • Damage to vascular endothelium
  • Phlebitis

Hypotonic Fluids can result in:

  • Swelling of red blood cells
  • Hemolysis
  • Water invasion of body cells
  • Death

With a click of your mouse, you can calculate the osmolarity values of your I.V. admixtures based on any of the following solution carriers:

  • Dextrose 5%
  • Sodium Chloride 0.45%
  • Sodium Chloride 0.9%
  • Lactated Ringers
  • Sterile Water for Injection

You can customize your I.V. admixtures using a wide range of preprogrammed manufactured and compounded products.

With each selection, the osmolarity value is calculated for the entire admixture.

Following are examples of some of the preprogrammed products you can select:

  • Arginine HCL
  • Ascorbic Acid
  • B Complex-100
  • Dexpanthenol
  • Calcium EDTA
  • Disodium EDTA
  • Folic Acid
  • Glutathione
  • Hydroxocobalamin
  • Multi-Trace Elements
  • Procaine
  • Pyridoxine HCL
  • Sodium Bicarbonate
  • Taurine

The osmolarity software is open-ended. This means you can add new products and store them onto your ingredient list.
