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

"When giving my children oral medication, I prefer to measure and administer the medication using a syringe rather than a cup," said Colin Sox, MD, MS, a general pediatrician in Boston.  "Oral syringes not only allow for more precise dosage, but also make administering medicine much easier, especially for young children."

  • Clearly label and graduate syringes for specific oral medications – Unfortunately, not all dosage delivery devices are clearly labeled to match the exact OTC medication and dosing directions.  As a result, mismatches can occur that lead to confusion and dosing errors.  Customized liquid dosing devices, rather than generic graduated cups or syringes can dramatically impact patient safety with little incremental cost to drug manufacturers.

According to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that evaluated 200 OTC liquid drug products, of the 75% of products that came with a dosage delivery device, 98.6% had at least one mismatch between the device and the written dosing directions.

"The recent Food and Drug Administration guidance for orally ingested OTC liquid drug products is an important wake-up call to the industry and a much-needed rallying cry for parents who rely on drug manufacturers to produce medication that is safe and easy to administer," said Greg Baldwin, CEO of Baxa Corporation.  "As the inventor of the first oral syringe in 1975 and an innovator of fluid drug delivery systems, Baxa is committed to providing solutions that advance the safe delivery of all liquid medications and reduce the risk of dosing error."
