Il arrête la division de cellules cancéreuses et la fabrication de nouvelles cellules cancéreuses. L’étoposide est offert sous forme de gélule et d’injection. </p> <p>Il est également appelé VP 16 ou VePesid®, son nom de marque.</p> <p> Certains enfants sont incapables d’avaler les gélules de 50 mg d’étoposide ou nécessitent une dose inférieure à 50 mg. La solution injectable de 20 mg/ml d’étoposide est administrée par voie orale. Veuillez examiner attentivement les directives suivantes. </p><h2>À retenir</h2><ul><li>La solution injectable de 20 mg/ml d’étoposide est administrée par voie orale. </li><li>Portez des gants, un masque et une blouse lorsque vous administrez de l’étoposide à votre enfant. </li><li>Pour retirer l’étoposide de la fiole, vous devez utiliser le dispositif d’accès à la fiole (perforateur) et la seringue intraveineuse. </li><li>Diluez l’étoposide dans un liquide. N’utilisez pas de jus de pamplemousse. </li><li>Utilisez un nouveau perforateur de fiole pour chaque nouvelle fiole d’étoposide.</li></ul><h2>Retirer l’étoposide de la fiole</h2> <ul><li>Retirez la capsule en plastique de la fiole d’étoposide et placez la fiole verticalement sur une surface dure. </li> <li>Retirez le perforateur de fiole de son emballage et insérez le dans la fiole de médicament. </li> <li>Placez la fiole d’étoposide sur le comptoir et alignez le perforateur au centre du bouchon de la fiole. Maintenez le perforateur droit et insérez le fermement dans la fiole jusqu’à ce qu’il perce le bouchon de caoutchouc et que la « jupe » en plastique se casse sur la fiole. </li> <li>Retirez la seringue de son emballage. Attachez la seringue au perforateur de fiole en poussant et en tournant jusqu’à ce qu’elle soit solide. </li> <li>Tournez la fiole à l’envers et tirez sur le piston de la seringue lentement afin d’obtenir la dose nécessaire. </li> <li>Un petit ballon gonflera à l’intérieur de la fiole afin d’équilibrer la pression. C’est normal. </li> <li>Retirez la seringue du perforateur de fiole. </li></ul> <p>Vous pouvez maintenant administrer la dose d’étoposide. </p> <h2>Administrer l’étoposide à votre enfant par voie orale</h2> <ul><li>Diluez l’étoposide avec une quantité au moins égale de jus afin d’améliorer le goût. Vous pouvez utiliser du jus de pommes, du jus d’orange, du cola ou de la limonade. N’utilisez pas de jus de pamplemousse. </li> <li>Lorsque vous avez terminé, jetez la seringue vide dans le conteneur à aiguilles. </li> <li>Utilisez une nouvelle seringue si des doses supplémentaires sont nécessaires. </li> <li>Le perforateur de fiole reste sur la fiole d’étoposide et peut être utilisé pour d’autres doses pendant un maximum de dix jours. Rangez la fiole verticalement, dans un endroit frais et sec, à l’abri de la lumière. </li> <li>Utilisez un nouveau perforateur de fiole pour chaque nouvelle fiole d’étoposide.</li></ul><h2>Avant d’administrer une chimiothérapie:</h2><div class="akh-series"><div class="row"><div class="col-md-12"> <figure> <img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/chemo_at_home_general_protect_yourself_EQUIP_ILL_FR.jpg" alt="Une personne portant une masque couvrant le nez et la bouche, des gants et une blouse d’hôpital jetable" /> <figcaption class="“asset-image-caption”">Évitez tout contact avec la chimiothérapie en portant des gants et un masque facial.
