Since the introduction of IVH treatment, its prescription and technique of this treatment have improved as a result of the many experiments and clinical reasearch conducted.In this study on the pharmacist's safety while adjusting IVH, it was forcused mainly on the amount and the size of the scattering glass fragments and the distance they traveled when an ampoule is opened.The results of the experiment were follows.(1) The number of glass fragments for those larger than 30μm only Scattered was from a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 33. The largest glass fragment found in each of the three samples used was 182.7μm, 238.3μm, and 126.1μm for Ohtsuka MV® Sohvita®, and distilled water, respectively.(2) Many fragment were from 30μm to 40μm in size, with fragments of this size were contained in each sample as follows: 53.50%, 46.30%, and 57.95% in Ohtsuka MV®, SohvitaR, and distilled water, respectively.(3) It was found that glass fragments could scatter up to 80cm in distance away from the ampoule.
