THROMBIN-JMI® (thrombin, topical, bovine origin) Dosage and Administration

2 DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

For topical use on the surface of bleeding tissue only. Do not inject.

2.1 Reconstitution

  • For routine use, reconstitute THROMBIN-JMI with sterile isotonic saline at a recommended concentration of 1,000 to 2,000 International Units per mL.
  • Where bleeding is profuse, as from abraded surfaces of liver or spleen, concentrations of 1,000 International Units per mL may be required.
  • For general use in plastic surgery, dental extractions, skin grafting, etc. solutions containing approximately 100 International Units per mL are frequently used. Prepare intermediate strengths to suit the needs of the case by diluting the contents of the THROMBIN-JMI container with an appropriate volume of sterile isotonic saline. THROMBIN-JMI can be used in a dry form on oozing surfaces.
  • In instances where a concentration of approximately 1,000 units per mL is desired, the contents of the vial of sterile isotonic saline diluent may be transferred into the THROMBIN-JMI container with a sterile syringe or sterile transfer device.
  • For use with GEL-FLOW™ NT, reconstitute THROMBIN-JMI 5,000 IU powder with 5 mL sterile isotonic saline and use Thrombin-JMI Thrombin solution according to the directions for use in the GEL-FLOW™ NT package insert.

If the transfer device is used for reconstitution, transfer the diluent in the following manner:

  1. Remove the plastic cap off of the diluent vial.
  2. Remove the Tyvek cover from the transfer device container. Do not remove the device from the package.
  3. Seat the blue end of the device on the diluent vial, pushing down until the spike penetrates the diaphragm and the device snaps in place.

  4. Flip the plastic cover off on the THROMBIN-JMI container. DO NOT REMOVE THE ALUMINUM SEAL.
  5. Remove the plastic package from the transfer device. Do not touch the exposed end of the device.
  6. Invert the vial of diluent and insert the clear end of the transfer device into the diaphragm of the THROMBIN-JMI container.

CAUTION: Solutions should be used promptly upon removal from the container. However, the solution may be refrigerated at 2°C – 8°C for up to 24 hours, or may be stored at room temperature for up to 8 hours after reconstitution.

THROMBIN-JMI PUMP SPRAY KIT

  1. Remove the outer lid by pulling up at the indicated edge. The inner tray is sterile and suitable for introduction into any operating field.
  2. Remove the cover on inner tray to expose sterile contents.
  3. Reconstitute the THROMBIN-JMI to desired potency by introducing sterile isotonic saline with a sterile syringe or a sterile transfer device. If the transfer device is used, follow the previously described procedure.
  4. When the THROMBIN-JMI is completely dissolved, open vial by flipping up metal and tearing counterclockwise.
  5. Remove the rubber diaphragm from vial. Remove pump with protective cap from tray and snap onto vial.

  7. To spray, hold vial upright or at a slight angle. Several strokes of the pump will be required to expel the solution.
  8. Discard unused contents and pump: DO NOT TRANSFER SPRAY PUMP TO ANOTHER VIAL.

THROMBIN-JMI SYRINGE SPRAY KIT

Refer to THROMBIN-JMI Syringe Spray Kit instructions for spray syringe assembly and use. Each syringe kit contains one vial of THROMBIN-JMI, one vial of diluent and one spray tip and syringe.

  1. Remove the outer lid by pulling up at the indicated edge. The inner tray is sterile and suitable for introduction into any operating field.
  2. Remove the cover on the inner tray to expose sterile contents.
  3. Using the sterile syringe equipped with a transfer device, draw the desired amount of saline diluent from the vial into the syringe.
  4. Inject the saline diluent into the THROMBIN-JMI thrombin vial from the syringe to reconstitute the THROMBIN-JMI thrombin powder.
  5. When the THROMBIN-JMI powder is completely dissolved, draw the THROMBIN-JMI Thrombin solution into the syringe.
  6. Remove the syringe from the transfer device by turning syringe counterclockwise.

2.2 Administration

Topical application of THROMBIN-JMI

  1. The recipient surface should be sponged (not wiped) free of blood before THROMBIN-JMI is applied.
  2. A spray may be used or the surface may be flooded using a sterile syringe and small gauge needle. The most effective hemostasis results occur when the THROMBIN-JMI mixes freely with the blood as soon as it reaches the surface.
  3. Sponging of the treated surfaces should be avoided to assure that the clot remains securely in place.

Use in conjunction with Absorbable Gelatin Sponge

Consult the Absorbable Gelatin Sponge, USP labeling for complete information for use prior to utilizing the following thrombin saturated sponge procedure.

  1. Prepare THROMBIN-JMI solution to desired strength.
  2. Immerse sponge strips of the desired size in THROMBIN-JMI solution. Knead the sponge strips vigorously with moistened, gloved fingers to remove trapped air, thereby facilitating saturation of the sponge.
  3. Apply saturated sponge to bleeding area. Hold in place with a pledget of cotton or a small gauze sponge until hemostasis occurs.

Use in conjunction with GEL-FLOW™ NT

THROMBIN-JMI may also be used with GEL-FLOW™ NT according to the directions for use in the GEL-FLOW™ NT package insert.
