This irrigating solution should be used according to standard format for each surgical procedure.

Note: Use an administration set with an air-inlet in the plastic spike since the bottle does not contain a separate airway tube. Follow directions of the particular administration set to be used. Remove the flip-off cap. Clean and disinfect the rubber stopper by using a sterile alcohol wipe. Insert the spike aseptically into the bottle through the target area of the rubber stopper.

Allow the fluid to flow and remove air from the tubing before irrigation begins.
