How do you reconstitute a vial?

Inject diluent into the powder vial – if it is a foamy solution, inject slowly and onto the wall of the vial. If you meet resistance, allow air back into the syringe to allow all the liquid into the vial.

What is a reconstitution syringe?

A system is a single unit for reconstituting a powder drug with a diluent prefilled syringe.

Why must you reconstitute with water for injection?

As water for injections is solute-free with an osmolarity of zero (a hypotonic solution), its entry into the systemic circulation will result in a dilution of the electrolytes in the extracellular fluid leading to the movement of water into the red blood cells causing hemolysis.
