FDA Issues Warning on potentially lethal dosage errors for hemodialysis patients

Comments (0)

Recently, The FDA issued a warning to healthcare workers administering dialysate concentrates.

The administration warned health care professionals treating patients with kidney failure to carefully read the labels on the bottle containing dialysate concentrates. This substance is used during hemodialysis procedures in patients that have kidney failure and the FDA warned that if the product contains acetate, citrate, or acetic acid then providers should adjust the dosing.

Once these substances are in circulation in the body, they are transformed into bicarbonate. This can lead to a condition called metabolic alkalosis which can induce:

  • heart attack,
  • low blood pressure, and/or
  • arrhythmia.

Wrong dosages labeled on bottles or containers or filled incorrectly by a pharmacist can be lethal and if a cocktail of drugs is prescribed, which causes adverse drug reactions, serious harm could be done.

Pharmacy errors occur more often than we think
Every year in the US, there are 1.3 million individuals harmed by a pharmacy error and 10,000 patients die due to errors. Often, these errors are completely preventable because pharmacists are distracted or fatigued, often working long hours to meet the demands of their jobs.

Medicine dosage error victims have legal rights
Many wrong dosage cases can lead to life-changing situations. If death occurs, the family may be left without a primary income earner. If you have been a victim of a medication dosage error and have suffered severe side effects you should contact a personal injury lawyer to investigate the facts of your case. You may have a claim for compensation in a medicine dosage error case.
