Product description

OSMITROL is a sterile, nonpyrogenic solution of Mannitol, USP in a single-dose flexible container for intravenous administration as an osmotic diuretic. It contains no antimicrobial agents. Mannitol is a six carbon sugar alcohol prepared commercially by the reduction of dextrose. The pH is adjusted with sodium hydroxide or hydrochloric acid. Composition, osmolarity, and pH are shown in Table 1.

Table 1 Size Composition *Osmolarity pH
(mL) Mannitol, USP
1000 50 274 5.0
(4.5 TO 7.0)
500 100 549 5.0
(4.5 TO 7.0)
500 150 823 5.0
(4.5 TO 7.0)
250 200 1098 5.0
(4.5 TO 7.0)

* Normal physiologic osmolarity range is approximately 280 to 310 mOsmol/L.

The plastic container is fabricated from a specially formulated polyvinyl chloride (PL 146 Plastic). The amount of water that can permeate from inside the container into the overwrap is insufficient to affect the solution significantly. Solutions in contact with the plastic container can leach out certain of its chemical components in very small amounts within the expiration period, e.g., di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), up to 5 parts per million. However, the safety of the plastic has been confirmed in tests in animals according to USP biological tests for plastic containers as well as by tissue culture toxicity studies.
