The RiaSTAP package insert states, "Before administration, filter reconstituted RIASTAP solution with a 17-micron filter (not supplied) into an appropriate syringe."
Please share how you are doing this, where you are obtaining a 17 micron filter and if you are using syringes vs empty bag. If syringe, are you using a syringe pump?
Does your OR reconstitute their own and how do they filter it?
