NEVER ADMINISTER HYPERRHO S/D MINI-DOSE INTRAVENOUSLY. INJECT ONLY INTRAMUSCULARLY. ADMINISTER ONLY TO WOMEN POSTABORTION OR POSTMISCARRIAGE OF UP TO 12 WEEKS’ GESTATION. NEVER ADMINISTER TO THE NEONATE.

One syringe of HyperRHO S/D Mini-Dose provides sufficient antibody to prevent Rh sensitization to 2.5 mL Rho(D) positive packed red cells or the equivalent (5 mL) of whole blood. This dose is sufficient to provide protection against maternal Rh sensitization for women undergoing spontaneous or induced abortion of up to 12 weeks’ gestation.

Rho(D) Immune Globulin (Human) — HyperRHO® S/D Mini-Dose (250 IU; 50 mcg) should be administered within 3 hours or as soon as possible following spontaneous or induced abortion. If prompt administration is not possible, HyperRHO S/D Mini-Dose should be given within 72 hours following termination of the pregnancy.

HyperRHO S/D Mini-Dose is administered intramuscularly, preferably in the deltoid muscle of the upper arm or lateral thigh muscle. The gluteal region should not be used as an injection site because of the risk of injury to the sciatic nerve. [10]

Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit.

HyperRHO S/D Mini-Dose is supplied with a syringe and an attached UltraSafe® Needle Guard for your protection and convenience. Please follow instructions below for proper use of syringe and UltraSafe® Needle Guard.

Directions for Syringe Usage

  1. Remove the prefilled syringe from the package. Lift syringe by barrel, not by plunger.

  2. Twist the plunger rod clockwise until the threads are seated.

  3. With the rubber needle shield secured on the syringe tip, push the plunger rod forward a few millimeters to break any friction seal between the rubber stopper and the glass syringe barrel.

  4. Remove the needle shield and expel air bubbles. [Do not remove the rubber needle shield to prepare the product for administration until immediately prior to the anticipated injection time.]

  5. Proceed with hypodermic needle puncture.
  6. Aspirate prior to injection to confirm that the needle is not in a vein or artery.
  7. Inject the medication.
  8. Keeping your hands behind the needle, grasp the guard with free hand and slide forward toward needle until it is completely covered and guard clicks into place. If audible click is not heard, guard may not be completely activated. (See Diagrams A and B)

  9. Place entire prefilled glass syringe with guard activated into an approved sharps container for proper disposal. (See Diagram C)
