INTRODUCTION

Capnea Injection is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of apnea (a disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts) of prematurity. It facilitates normal breathing and reduces interrupted breathing in premature newborns.

Capnea Injection is given under the supervision of healthcare professionals. Remember, if you are breastfeeding while your infant is treated with this medicine, then do not drink coffee or take any other high caffeine product as this passes into breast milk.

Some common side effects of this medicine include mild delirium, insomnia, frequent urge to urinate, dehydration, tachycardia, and fever. Consult your doctor if these do not go away or persist for a longer duration. They may be able to suggest ways to prevent or reduce the side effects.

USES OF CAPNEA INJECTION
  • Apnea of prematurity

BENEFITS OF CAPNEA INJECTION

In Apnea of prematurity

In a premature baby, the part of the brain that controls breathing is not mature enough for nonstop breathing. This causes large bursts of breath followed by periods of shallow breathing or stopped breathing. This is called apnea or breathing trouble of prematurity. Capnea Injection helps to stimulate those areas of the brain that control breathing and normalise it. It is given as an injection by a doctor or nurse.

SIDE EFFECTS OF CAPNEA INJECTION
Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

Common side effects of Capnea

  • Delirium (acute confusional state)
  • Insomnia (difficulty in sleeping)
  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Dehydration
  • Fever

HOW TO USE CAPNEA INJECTION
Your doctor or nurse will give you this medicine. Kindly do not self administer.

HOW CAPNEA INJECTION WORKS
Capnea Injection is a stimulant. It works by blocking the action of certain natural substances (adenosine and phosphodiesterase) leading to stimulation of the brain and respiratory system in premature newborns. This reduces the number of episodes of interrupted breathing and helps the newborns breathe on their own.
