USP 797 and Inhalation Products

Lukas Westendorf's picture


I am curious how other sites are interpreting this or have found other guidance. We use the Aerogen syringes for some of our continuous inhalation products and they currently are not manufactured as sterile and we have not identified a sterile, safe substitute.

1.1.1 CSPs affected:
• Aqueous preparations for pulmonary inhalation.

Pharmacy Compounded Inhalation dispensing

I'm looking for some feedback on how other institutions are dispensing pharmacy-compounded syringes for inhalation. Some examples we're dispensing here are: amikacin, albuterol, amphotericin B, polymyxin B, and colistimethate.

What syringes are you dispensing in? (IV vs. oral)

Do inhalation syringes (other than the 60 mL Aerogen syringe) exist? Specifically, smaller volumes?

Any other additional preparation steps to ensure proper administration route (labeling, bagging, etc)?
