Non–weight-based dosing1

CLEVIPREX dosing is also:

  • A low infusion volume1
  • Available as ready-to-use 50- and 100-mL vials1

Low-volume dosing option1

Excessive fluid intake may lead to adverse outcomes in critically ill patients7,8:

  • Consider the results of the ECLIPSE trials
  • See how infusion volumes varied between hypertensive agents in the postoperative setting

CLEVIPREX has not been studied or proven to impact fluid overload.
