MIXING

  • Obtain a clear/clean space to prepare the Entyvio.

  • Be sure all the necessary supplies are available to complete infusion from beginning to end.  You will need IV start supplies, syringe, needle, and sterile water for reconstitution, 250ml bag of NS, tubing (gravity tubing or pump tubing if using a pump).

  • Entyvio comes as a powder in a glass vial. Reconstitute powder by adding 4.8ml of sterile water to the vial. 

  • Direct the sterile water stream to the wall of the vial to avoid excessive foaming.

  • Gently swirl to mix.  Do not shake. Allow powder to fully dissolve.

  • Withdraw the 5ml reconstituted Entyvio solution from the vial and add to the bag of Normal Saline.

  • Gently mix the bag.
