Frequently Asked Questions for Pharmacists on Pre-Filled Saline/Heparin Flush Syringes

Q: Are pre-filled saline/heparin flush syringes treated as prescription drugs or prescription devices?

A: Consistent with the federal Food and Drug Administration's August 2006 designation of pre-filled syringes of saline/heparin (100 U/ml or 10 U/ml) flush as medical devices, the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy will likewise regulate such flushes as medical devices under the Pharmacy Practice Act.
