Tap water can become contaminated with a wide variety of germs. Common bacteria types include Legionella, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Naegleria fowleri. These cause lung infections, skin infections, and brain infections respectively.
Because these types of germs exist, a medical aqueous injection usually contains some form of “clean” water. One of the options for this purpose is bacteriostatic water.
What is bacteriostatic water? Read on to find out.
What Is Bacteriostatic Water?
Bacteriostatic water (BSW) is a solution that is free from viruses, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms. It contains sterile water (water free of foreign substances) and one type of several different bactericidal solutions (BCSs). These are substances that inhibit bacteria growth.
The most commonly used BCS in BSW is benzyl alcohol. With this, you can use BSW for around a month before there’s a risk of bacterial infection.
How Is Bacteriostatic Water Used?
BSW is often used in aqueous injections. These are intravenous injections that use water as a diluent or solvent. That is, the water in the solution dilutes or dissolves medications before they’re injected into the body.
Healthcare workers prefer to use BSW for these because it’s better at inhibiting bacterial growth than sterile water. In addition, workers can dose patients multiple times using a single vial. This makes the resulting aqueous injection solution far more practical.
Examples of medicines dissolved in these solutions include vaccines and insulin. It’s also great for mixing with Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). This is the hormone that you use with the mixing kits that we supply.
Using Bacteriostatic Water with the HCG Diet
Our mixing kits contain BSW. Once you purchase HCG powder, you can use BSW to dissolve it before injecting the solution. Here are the steps that you should take:
Put Out the Materials
You need to put out your mixing materials in a sterile environment. Wash your hands and dry them thoroughly.
Open the HCG Ampoule
Clean the top of the HCG glass ampoule with alcohol. Snap the top of the ampoule at the narrowest part. Break it as you would a wooden match or toothpick.
Sterilize the Vials
Get an alcohol pad. Use it to sterilize the rubber tops of the 30cc BSW vial and the empty glass vial.
Draw less than 1 cc of BSW into a 10cc mixing syringe. Inject this into the empty sterile glass vial.
Then, draw another 1cc and inject it into the HCG ampoule. Let the powder dissolve and swirl the ampoule gently. Draw the mixture back and inject it into the vial with BSW.
A Note on the HCG Diet
Please remember that this article does not offer professional medical advice. Before you start any type of diet, you must consult your physician first.
