Description

Sulbacin® Injection is produced by Unichem. Sulbacin® Injection comprises Ampicillin and Sulbactam as raw materials. Ampicillin is an extended-spectrum 3rd generation Aminopenicillin (drug class Penicillins). Ampicillin is beta-lactamase sensitive. Sulbactam is a synthetic beta-lactamase inhibitor, used in combination with Ampicillin to prevent antibiotic Ampicillin’s destruction, thereby extending its spectrum activity.

Indications:

- skin and soft tissue infections caused by beta-lactamase producing strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella spp. (including K. pneumoniae), Proteus mirabilis, Bacteroides fragilis, Enterobacter spp., and Acinetobacter calcoaceticus;

- intra-abdominal infections including peritonitis, cholecystitis, endometritis and pelvic cellulitis caused by beta-lactamase producing strains of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella spp. (including K. pneumoniae), Bacteroides spp. (including B. fragilis), and Enterobacter spp.;

- gynecological infections;

- prophylaxis of surgical infections injection should be given at induction of anesthesia, which allows time to achieve effective serum and tissue concentrations during the procedure.

MOA (mechanism of action):

Ampicillin is a cell-wall inhibitor, that kills the bacteria by attacking the cell wall. Namely, it hinders the synthesis of peptidoglycan, which is vital for survival of bacteria in the human body. Sulbactam, also called a suicide inhibitor, binds to beta-lactamases and inactivates them, thereby protecting Ampicillin, that is normally substrate for these enzymes. Thus, the activity of Ampicillin is enhanced if used alongside Sulbactam. Ampicillin has strong antimicrobial effect against Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhi, Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumonia, Streptococcus pyrogenes, Neisseria meningitidis, Proteus mirabilis, and Enterococcus faecalis.

Dosage

Sulbacin® Injection is for intramuscular (IM) administration.

For intramuscular (IM) administration, 1,5 g of powder is dissolved in 3,2 ml of sterile water.

The solution must be used fresh, immediately after reconstitution (within 30 minutes after preparation).

Product is for single use in one patient only.

The duration of treatment is generally 5-14 days depending on the severity of the infection. In severe infections, treatment may be prolonged. The treatment should be continued for at least 48 hours after the patient becomes asymptomatic.

Adults

The recommended dose for adults is 3 to 12 g of injectable Sulbacin® depending on the severity of the infection divided into equal single doses every 6 to 8 hours.

Children

For children over 2 years the recommended dose is 150 mg/kg/day. The therapeutic dosage should be given in 3-4 divided doses.

The IM administration should not be given in newborn infants, infants and toddlers (under 2 years).

Where to give intramuscular (IM) injection

Wash your hands and sanitize the patch of skin over the muscle where the injection will take place with an alcohol swab prior to performing the injection.

1. Thigh. Divide your thigh into 3 equal parts. A third in the middle will be right for injection. This area is good for kids under 3 years of age.

2. Hip. Place the palm of your hand on the upper, outer part of the thigh, where the buttocks meet. Point your thumb at the groin and fingers toward the patient's head. Make a V with fingers, whilst separating the first finger from the other three. With the tips of little and ring fingers, you will feel the edge of a bone. The area to give the injection is in the middle of the V. The hip best suits for adults and children older than 7 months.

3. Upper arm muscle. The upper arm should be completely exposed. The injection is given in the middle of an upside down triangle. The bone going across the top of the upper arm is a part of the scapula, called acromion process. The bottom of it forms the base of the triangle. The point of the triangle is below the center of the base nearly the armpit. The suitable area to give an injection is in the middle of the triangle, 2,5 to 5,1 cm below the acromion process. The hip should not be used if the person is very thin or the muscle is too small.

4. Buttocks. Expose one side of the buttocks. Draw a line from the top of the crack between the buttocks to the side of the body with an alcohol wipe. Find the middle of that line and go up 7,6 cm. From this point, draw another line down and across the first line, ending about halfway down the buttock. You should have drawn a cross. There will be a curved bone in the upper outer square. The injection will be given into the upper outer square below the curved bone. Do not use this area for injections in infants or children under 3 years of age.

How to give intramuscular (IM) injection

1. Place the syringe between your thumb and first finger. Let the syringe lean on your second finger.

2. With your free hand, gently press on and pull the skin so that it is tight a little bit.

3. Hold the syringe tightly and use your wrist to inject the needle into the skin and into the muscle at an angle 90 degrees.

4. Stop holding the skin with your other hand. Keep the syringe pointed straight in. Aspirate a little to make sure you did not hit a blood vessel. If blood comes, remove the needle immediately. Do not inject the medication. Dispose of both the syringe and the medicine. Get more medication in a new syringe. When you give the second injection, give it on the other side.

5. Insert the medication by pushing on the plunger. Inject the medication slowly to reduce the pain.

6. Remove needle swiftly. Press sterile cotton wool onto the opening. Secure with adhesive tape.

7. Dispose of syringe safely; wash your hands.

How to give intravenous (IV)

Material for injection: syringe with the drug (without air), needle (long and medium thickness; on syringe), liquid disinfectant, cotton wool, adhesive tape, tourniquet.

1. Wash your hands and expose the arm completely.

2. Apply tourniquet and look for a suitable vein.

3. Wait for the vein to swell.

4. Sanitize skin with an alcohol cotton wool (using liquid disinfectant).

5. Stabilize the vein by pulling the skin taut in the longitudinal direction of the vein. Do this with the hand you are not going to use for injecting.

6. Insert the needle at an angle of about 35 degrees.

7. Penetrate into the skin and push the needle slightly into the vein (3-5 mm).

8. Hold the syringe and needle firmly.

9. Aspirate. If blood appears hold the syringe steady, you are in the vein. If blood doesn't come, try again.

10. If you are in the vein, loosen tourniquet and inject very slowly.

12. Remove needle swiftly. Press sterile cotton wool onto the opening. Secure with adhesive tape.

13. Dispose of syringe safely; wash your hands.

Missing a dose

If you miss a dose you should take it as soon as you remember about your missing. If it is the time for the next dose you should continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not use a double dose of Sulbacin® Injection to compensate the missed dose.

Overdose

If an overdose occurs and you are not feeling well, stop taking the medication immediately. You should seek emergency medical attention or contact your healthcare provider immediately.
