hvis du har porfyri (mørkerød urin, kraftige mavesmerter, psykiske forstyrrelser

som f.eks. angst)

Advarsler og forsigtighedsregler

Graviditet, amning og frugtbarhed

Hvis du er gravid eller ammer, har mistanke om, at du er gravid, eller planlægger at

blive gravid, skal du spørge din læge til råds, før du bruger dette lægemiddel.

Thiopental Life bør kun gives til gravide, hvis der klart behov for det.

Thiopental udskilles i modermælk. Før Thiopental Life anvendes, bør amning derfor

midlertidigt ophøre (i mindst 12 timer) og brystmælken udmalkes.

Trafik- og arbejdssikkerhed

Patienten må ikke føre motorkøretøj eller betjene maskiner inden for 24 timer efter at

have fået Thiopental Life, eller i en periode, der fastlægges af den ansvarlige læge.

Thiopental Life indeholder natrium

Et hætteglas med Thiopental Life 500 mg indeholder 2,2-2,4 mmol (51-56 mg)

natrium. Et hætteglas med Thiopental Life, 1 000 mg, indeholder 4,4-4,9 mmol

(102-112 mg) natrium. Patienter på natriumfattig diæt skal tage hensyn hertil.

3. Sådan bliver du behandlet med Thiopental Life

Sundhedspersonalet vil give dig Thiopental Life i en dosis, der fastlægges af lægen.

Du vil få thiopental indsprøjtet direkte i en vene (intravenøst).

Hvis du har fået for meget Thiopental Life

Det er usandsynligt at du får for stor en dosis, da sundhedspersonalet tager sig af

administrationen af Thiopental Life.

Spørg lægen eller sundhedspersonalet, hvis der er noget, du er i tvivl om.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Følgende oplysninger er tiltænkt læger og sundhedspersonale:

Fremstilling af opløsninger

Thiopental Life, pulver til injektionsvæske, opløsning, skal fremstilles aseptisk med et

af følgende tre solvenser:

Vand til injektionsvæsker

Natriumchlorid 9 mg/ml (0,9 %)

Glukose, 50 mg/ml (5 %)

De kliniske koncentrationer, der anvendes til intermitterende intravenøs

administration, varierer mellem 2,0 % og 5,0 %. Oftest anvendes en 2,0 % eller

2,5 % opløsning. En 3,4 % opløsning i sterilt vand til injektionsvæsker er isotonisk;

koncentrationer på mindre end 2,0 % i dette solvens anvendes ikke, da de

medfører hæmolyse. Til kontinuerlig intravenøs administration i drop anvendes

koncentrationer på 0,2 % eller 0,4 %. Opløsningerne kan fremstilles ved tilsætning af

thiopental til en 5 % vandig glukoseopløsning eller en 0,9 % opløsning af

natriumchlorid.

BEREGNINGER TIL FORSKELLIGE KONCENTRATIONER

Ønsket koncentration

Mængde, der skal anvendes

mg/ml

g Thiopental Life

ml solvens

Da Thiopental Life ikke er tilsat bakteriostatisk middel, skal der udvises den yderste

omhu ved fremstilling og håndtering for at undgå tilførsel af mikrobielle

kontaminanter. Opløsningerne skal fremstilles frisk og anvendes straks. Når

rekonstituering foretages med henblik på administration til flere patienter, skal ubrugt

opløsning kasseres efter 24 timer. Der må ikke anvendes sterilisering med damp.

Thiopental Life må kun indgives intravenøst. Undgå ekstravasation og intraarteriel

injektion. En person med uddannelse i anæstesi bør konstant være til stede under

administration af lægemidlet. Udstyr til endotrakeal intubering, oxygen og

genoplivningsudstyr skal være umiddelbart for hånden.

Hvis der er synligt bundfald efter opløsning af Thiopental Life, bør opløsningen ikke

anvendes.

Uforligeligheder:

Stabiliteten af opløsninger af Thiopental Life, afhænger af flere faktorer, herunder

det anvendte solvens, opbevaringstemperatur samt kuldioxidindholdet i den luft, der

får adgang til opløsningen. Enhver faktor eller tilstand, der sænker pH (øger

surhedsgraden) af opløsninger med Thiopental Life, øger sandsynligheden for

udfældning af thiopentalsyre. Sådanne faktorer kan være anvendelse af et for surt

solvens og absorption af kuldioxid, der med vand kan danne kulsyre.

Opløsninger af suxamethonium, tubocurarin og andre lægemidler med surt pH bør

ikke blandes med opløsninger af Thiopental Life.

De mest stabile opløsninger er dem, der rekonstitueres i vand og/eller isotonisk

saltvand og/eller glukoseopløsning og opbevares nedkølet og tillukket.
