Getting Your Patients Started with VELETRI® (epoprostenol) for Injection

Preparing the Work Area

This is a very important step, because bacterial contamination can lead to serious infections in individuals on intravenous drug therapy.

To help prevent infection, clean the area where you will be preparing VELETRI with disinfectant wipes or 70% alcohol. Let the surface air-dry. Follow these directions again if the area becomes contaminated during use.

Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least one minute, then dry prior to reconstituting, diluting, and administering VELETRI. If you must leave the work area before completing the process, be sure to thoroughly wash and dry your hands again.

Decrease the chance of infection by keeping your work area clean.
