Non-Opioid, Ready-to-Administer Sterile Solution for Periarticular Injection
What is R.E.C.K Injection?
R.E.C.K injection is a patented, non-opioid, ready-to-administer solution for periarticular injection containing the following active ingredients:
- 123 mg (2.46mg/mL) Ropivacaine HCl
- 0.25 mg (0.005mg/mL) Epinephrine
- 0.04 mg (0.0008mg/mL) Clonidine HCl
- 15 mg (0.3mg/mL) Ketorolac Tromethamine
These ingredients are combined in a solution of sodium chloride to provide a total volume of 50 mL per ready-to-administer syringe. The Beyond Use Date (BUD) for R.E.C.K. is 90 days, should be stored at room temperature, and protected from light.
How to use R.E.C.K
Multimodal Pain Management Multimodal therapy is the preferred approach to postoperative pain control for knee replacement surgery, meaning practitioners use Local Infiltrative Analgesia (LIA) cocktail formulations such as R.E.C.K to minimize pain. For example, patients can receive a combination of celecoxib, hydrocodone, gabapentin, acetaminophen, Solu-Cortef, oxycodone, tramadol, ketorolac, and/or hydromorphone.
