General Info

Cpressin® Injection is an antidiuretic medicine indicated for the prevention and treatment of postoperative abdominal distention, in abdominal roentgenography to dispel interfering gas shadows and to control frequent urination, increased thirst, and loss of water caused by cranial diabetes insipidus. Cpressin® Injection is recommended for use in patients over 6 years of age.

Cpressin® Injection
Active Ingredient

Vasopressin.

Description

Cpressin® Injection is manufactured by Samarth Life Sciences. The medicine is comprised of the active ingredient called Vasopressin also known as an antidiuretic hormone (ADH). Cpressin® Injection is commonly used in the treatment of cranial diabetes insipidus caused by the shortage of Vasopressin produced by a part of the brain called hypothalamus. It affects the kidneys and promotes reabsorption of water back into the circulation. The medication helps maintain the body's internal temperature, its blood volume, and the proper flow of urine from the kidneys.

Indications:

- prevention and treatment of postoperative abdominal distention;

- bleeding from esophageal varices;

- dispersion of interfering gas shadows in abdominal roentgenography;

- cranial diabetes insipidus followed by abnormal production of urine (polyuria) and constant thirst (polydipsia). Should not be confused with diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes);

- blood pressure increase in adults with vasodilatory shock (e. g. post-cardiotomy, sepsis) whose blood pressure has remained low after receiving fluids and other medicines.

The medicine is also used for bleeding control in some forms of von Willebrand disease and in extreme cases of bedwetting by children.

MOA (mechanism of action):

Cpressin® Injection works by retaining water in the body and by constricting blood vessels. Its active ingredient Vasopressin acts on 3 different receptors, vasopressin receptor V1a (which initiates vasoconstriction, liver gluconeogenesis, platelet aggregation and release blood-clotting protein), vasopressin receptor V1b (which mediates corticotrophin secretion from the pituitary) and vasopressin receptor V2 which controls free water reabsorption in the renal medulla. The binding of vasopressin to the V2 receptor activates adenylate cyclase which causes the release of aquaporin 2 channels into the cells lining the renal medullar duct. This allows water to be reabsorbed down an osmotic gradient so the urine is more concentrated.

Dosage

Cpressin® Injection may be administered intramuscularly (IM) or under the skin (subcutaneously) and should be given right after the opening of an ampoule. The maximum dose used per day in adult patients is 0,75 ml (15 units). It is recommended to consume 1 or 2 glasses of water each time you receive an injection in order to facilitate side effects like abdominal cramps, nausea, and blanching of the skin. The antidiuretic effect after the administration of Cpressin® Injection, either subcutaneously or intramuscularly, commonly lasts for 2 to 8 hours.

Usual Dose for Diabetes Insipidus:

- Adults: 5 units (0,25 ml) to 10 units (0,5 ml) intramuscularly or subcutaneously 2 to 4 times a day.

- Children (over 6 years of age): 2.5 units (0,125 ml) to 10 units (0,5 ml) intramuscularly once. This dose may be repeated 2 to 3 times a day as needed.

Usual Dose for Abdominal Distention:

- Adults: 5 units (0, 25 ml) initially, increase to 10 units (0,5 ml) at subsequent injections if necessary. It is recommended Vasopressin Injection be given intramuscularly and injections be repeated at three or four-hour intervals as required.

- Children (over 6 years of age): the dosage to be prescribed by a doctor for each patient individually.

Usual Dose for Abdominal Roentgenography:

- Adults: 10 units (0,5 ml) intramuscularly in 2 injections, which should be given two hours and one-half hour, respectively, before films are exposed. The accurate dose for each individual should be determined by a doctor.

- Children (over 6 years of age): the dosage to be prescribed by a doctor for each patient individually.

Where to give subcutaneous injection:

1. Abdomen: at or under the level of the navel.

2. Arm: back or side of the upper arm (slightly underneath the shoulder).

3. Thigh: front of the thigh. Divide your thigh into 3 equal parts. A third in the middle will be right for injection.

How to give subcutaneous injection:

1. Wash your hands with soap.

2. Choose the area to be injected. Make sure the skin there is not broken or inflamed.

3. Sanitize the injection site with an alcohol cotton wool. Let it dry.

4. Place the syringe between your thumb and the index finger. Let the syringe lean on your second finger.

5. With your free hand, grasp the skin at the injection site.

6. Hold the syringe tightly and carefully insert the needle into the skin. Once the needle is all the way in, push the plunger down to inject the medicine.

7. After you have injected the solution, remove the needle at the same angle you put it in. Gently wipe the area with the gauze pad.

8. Dispose of syringe safely. Wash your hands.

Where to give intramuscular (IM) injection:

1. Thigh. Divide your thigh into 3 equal parts. A third in the middle will be right for injection.

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.

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.

How to give intramuscular (IM) injection:

1. Wash your hands.

2. Choose the area to be injected. Make sure the skin there is not broken or inflamed.

3. Sanitize the injection site with an alcohol cotton wool. Let it dry.

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

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

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

7. 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.

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

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

10. Dispose of syringe safely. Wash your hands.

If you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not inject a double dose.
