IPN Solution Consists Of Peritonitis

In 2007, “the FDA announced that Pentec Health recalled 27,000 bags of IPN solution manufactured by the company”. The bags contained prescriptions that were filled on September 21, 2007 or previous and “were recalled due to an increased incidence in fungal peritonitis”, which was distributed all over the nation. Peritonitis consists of many sypmtoms such as abdominal pain, fever, change in bowel habits, and malaise. These symptoms only worsen, as time passes; along with extended progression of pain, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and hypothermia. Anitbiotic therapy, surgery, and fluid resuscitation treat Peritonitis but “as many as 50% of patients with secondary Peritonitis die of Sepsis”, which is “a serious medical condition that is characterized by a whole-body inflammatory and the presence of a known or suspected infection”. “The prognosis depends on the underlying condition of the patient, the rapidity if the diagnosis, and the subsequent treatment given”.
