What is a compounded IV admixture?


An IV admixture is the preparation of a pharmaceutical mixture of two or more drugs into a large bag or bottle of IV fluid. This is always done under the direction of a doctor, monitored by nurses and controlled by trained pharmacists. This is to be sure that no one is accidentally overdosed, or given the wrong medications.
