Medication Delivery Innovator Baxa Corporation Offers Best Practices for Administering Over-the-Counter Liquid Medicine to Babies and Toddlers
Date:5/19/2011

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., May 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to growing concerns about how to safely administer over-the-counter (OTC) liquid medications to children and the recent FDA Guidance for Industry on OTC delivery devices, Baxa Corporation, the leading provider of oral liquid drug delivery syringes, is available to discuss the following best practices for safe liquid medication administration at home and in hospitals:

  • Can the Cup – Calling upon more than 35 years of work with leading pediatric care centers around the world and data from the ISMP (Institute for Safe Medication Practices), Baxa cautions against using dosing cups to administer liquid medication to infants and children.

A February 2010 study of more than 300 parents published in the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine found that, when using a dosing cup with printed markings, 70% of parents made mistakes and almost all mistakes involved administering too much medicine.

  • Look for OTC medications packaged with oral syringes – Many OTC medications come with cups because they are cheaper to manufacture and easier to package.  However, this lower price at the register comes at the expense of safety.  Leading hospitals in the United States use oral syringes to safely administer liquid medication to children infants because of their accuracy in dosage and efficiency in administration (including parenteral syringes).  ISMP and The Joint Commission, the accrediting body for US hospitals and healthcare providers, both support this best practice.
