Zinc Sulfate Injection

Zinc Sulfate Injection

Zinc Sulfate Injection is a trace element indicated in adult and pediatric patients as a source of zinc for parenteral nutrition when oral or enteral nutrition is not possible, insufficient, or contraindicated1. Here are some key points about it:

  • Indications and Usage:

    • Zinc Sulfate Injection is used when patients cannot obtain sufficient zinc through regular eating or feeding tubes, and it cannot be given by mouth.
    • It serves as a way to provide the body with zinc when other methods are not feasible or adequate.
    • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Zinc Sulfate Injection in 19572.
  • Dosage and Administration:

    • Zinc Sulfate Injection provides different concentrations of zinc (3 mg/mL or 5 mg/mL).
    • For pediatric patients, a concentration of 1 mg/mL is recommended, especially for those weighing less than 12 kg.
    • Dosages should be individualized based on the patient’s clinical condition, nutritional requirements, and the contribution of oral or enteral zinc intake.
    • Monitoring zinc concentrations and signs of deficiency is essential during treatment, especially in pediatric patients1.

Remember to consult your healthcare provider for personalized advice, and if you have further questions or need additional information, feel free to ask! ðŸ˜Š
