Caution For Usage
Instructions for use: Read the instructions for use carefully, to ensure correct administration.
The recommended dose is to be diluted with physiological saline to a final volume of 3 - 4 mL and nebulised and inhaled until the solution is consumed. The solution should be rediluted each time before use; any residual diluted solution should be discarded.
Dosage may be dependent upon the mode of inhalation and the quality of nebulisation. The duration of inhalation can be controlled by the dilution volume.
ATROVENT Nebuliser Solution can be administered using a range of commercially available nebulising devices. Where wall oxygen is available the solution is best administered at a flow rate of 6 - 8 litres per minute.
ATROVENT Nebuliser Solution is suitable for concurrent inhalation with the Nebuliser Solution of the secretomucolytics ambroxol hydrochloride and bromhexine hydrochloride, or fenoterol hydrobromide.
ATROVENT Nebuliser Solution and disodium cromoglycate Nebuliser Solution should not be administered simultaneously in the same nebuliser as precipitation may occur.
