Sterile Water for Inhalation
Sterile Water for Inhalation is prepared from Water for Injection packaged and rendered sterile. Sterile Water for Inhalation is typically intended for use in inhalators and in the preparation of inhalation solutions, and is tested for Conductivity, Bacterial Endotoxin Testing (BET), Oxidizable Substances, and Sterility. However, it carries a less stringent specification for bacterial endotoxins than Sterile Water for Injection and therefore is not suitable for parenteral applications.
Sterile Water for Inhalation contains no antimicrobial agents, except where used in humidifiers or other similar devices and where liable to contamination over a period of time, or other added substances.
