Preparing your ColiFin® for inhalation
ColiFin® must be used immediately after dissolution. Do not dissolve ColiFin® until ready to administer a dose.
Please always read the leaflet for complete information.
Take one vial of ColiFin® and gently tap the glass vial so that the powder settles to the bottom. This helps ensure you get the proper dose of medication. Open the vial by lifting up the red or lavender plastic over cap* on the top.
Pull down the red or lavender plastic overcap together with the metal ring.
Tear the red or lavender overcap with a twisting movement in the direction of the arrow. Correct performance will allow you to tear the metal ring open. Tear the metal ring side ways so that the breaking point on the opposite side bends. Remove the metal ring from the vial. Safely dispose of the ring and overcap.
Carefully remove the rubber stopper. Add 1 ampoule of sterile sodium chloride 9 mg/ml (0.9%) solution to the vial to dissolve the powder by gently shaking until all powder is dissolved. The solution should be clear.
