Abstract:  Intravenous admixture compounding is common practice in most hospitals throughout the world. In this intravenous admixture series, we are covering important and practical topics. This issue presents considerations related to ready-to-use products in preparing/compounding admixtures and in actually compounding ready-to-use preparations in the pharmacy for patient use; most compounded intravenous admixtures are ready-to-use for a specific patient. Considerations include room, refrigerated, and frozen ready-to-use, activated ready-to-use, compounding with ready-to-use, implementing a ready-to-use program, and examples of ready-to-use products, their composition, container size, and packaging.
