Preparation for infusion: Fold the bag and hang it on the infusion stand by the centre hanging loop; Remove the protective cap from the set port and carry out infusion using the standard technique.
The mixture is a milky white homogenous oil in water emulsion.
The emulsion should always be brought to room temperature prior to infusion.
If filters are used they must be lipid-permeable.
The emulsion is to be used immediately after opening of the container.
Incompatibilities: Nutriflex Omega special must not be used as a carrier solution for pharmaceuticals or be mixed with other infusion solutions without testing, since it is not possible to guarantee adequate stability of the emulsion.
