Fresenius Kabi now offers ready-to-administer syringes of Ketorolac Tromethamine Injection in three strengths: 15mg/mL, 30 mg/mL and 60 mg/2mL.
“With this product addition, Ketorolac prefilled syringes are now available in three presentations, providing more ready-to-administer options to our customers,” said John Ducker, president and chief executive officer of Fresenius Kabi USA. “Similar to all Simplist syringes, this presentation of Ketorolac offers clear and consistent labeling, no assembly or point-of-care preparation and a 24 month shelf life. We look forward to bringing additional Simplist offerings to our customers.”
Ketorolac Tromethamine is a generic alternative to Toradol®. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) indicated for the short-term (up to 5 days in adults) management of moderately severe acute pain that requires analgesia at the opioid level, usually in a postoperative setting.
Prefilled injectable medicines are designed to help improve patient care and safety by decreasing the number of steps in the traditional vial and syringe injection sequence, reducing the potential risk of medication error.
