VistaPharm announced the launch of Potassium Chloride Solution, 10% in Unit Dose, the unit dose version of the only approved Potassium Chloride oral solution.
Potassium Chloride is used for the prophylaxis and treatment of hypokalemia. Specifically for patients whose dietary management with potassium-rich foods or diuretic dose reduction is insufficient. The potassium ion is the principal intracellular cation of most body tissues. Potassium ions participate in a number of essential physiological processes. These include the maintenance of intracellular tonicity; the transmission of nerve impulses; the contraction of cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscle; and the maintenance of normal renal function.
It is available as 30mL unit dose cups in 50-count cases.
