Abstract:  Intravenous admixture compounding is a common practice in most hospitals throughout the world, regardless of the country. The compounding of intravenous medications, however, involves risk, as there is a high potential for error due to their complexity in compounding. Also, working in an aseptic environment itself poses issues for the compounder. This article in an overall series on the topic of intravenous admixture compounding will discuss the vehicles commonly used in intravenous admixtures, as well as the small-volume parenterals often used in compounding intravenous admixtures.
