This information sheet explains what tinzaparin does, how to give it, and what side effects or problems your child may have when they take this medicine.</p><h2>Before giving tinzaparin to your child</h2> <p>Tell your doctor if your child:</p> <ul> <li>is allergic to tinzaparin, other low molecular weight heparins, heparin, sulfites, benzyl alcohol or pork products</li> <li>has any blood clotting problems, other conditions that increase the risk of bleeding or any active major bleeding</li> <li>has had a blood clotting reaction to heparin called thrombocytopenia, which is low platelet count</li> </ul> <h3>Talk with your doctor or pharmacist if your child has any of the following conditions. Precautions may need to be taken with this medicine if your child has:</h3> <ul> <li>kidney or liver problems</li> <li>stomach ulcers</li> <li>high blood pressure</li> </ul><h2>How to give your child tinzaparin</h2><p>Your child's first dose of tinzaparin will likely be given in the hospital or in clinic. If your child is to receive tinzaparin at home, arrangements may be made to have a nurse come into the home to give it. Alternatively, you may be taught by one of the nurses to give your child the subcutaneous (SC) injections, which are injections under the skin, at home.</p><p>If you give the injections at home:</p><ul><li>Make sure you understand and are comfortable with the way to prepare and inject tinzaparin and know how to dispose of the needle and syringe.</li><li>Please see the "Giving your child Tinzaparin" guide for more information.</li><li>Dispose of needles in a needle or sharps disposal container.</li></ul><h2>Knowing how much to give</h2><p>Tinzaparin is available in several different strengths. The dosing information below applies to the 20,000 units/mL (2 mL) multidose vials.</p><p>It is important that you know:</p><ul><li>your child's dose as the number of units of tinzaparin</li><li>the volume of solution that your child needs</li></ul><h3>Tinzaparin is usually injected using insulin syringes that are specially designed for injections into the skin. It is important to note that the volume is measured in units on an insulin syringe, and that one unit of insulin is not equal to one unit of tinzaparin.</h3><p>10 units on the insulin syringe (0.1 mL) = 2,000 units of tinzaparin.</p><p> <strong>Your child has been prescribed _______ units of tinzaparin each dose.</strong></p><p> <strong>This dose is equal to _______mL of 20,000 units per mL. This is equal to _______units on an insulin syringe.</strong></p><p>The doctor may sometimes need to change the dose. Please bring this Med-aid to all your child's Thrombosis Clinic appointments.

La présente fiche de renseignements explique comment agit le tinzaparin, comment l'administrer et quels effets secondaires ou quels problèmes pourrait ressentir votre enfant pendant qu'il prend ce médicament.</p><h2>Avant de donner ce médicament à votre enfant</h2> <p>Avisez votre médecin si votre enfant :</p> <ul><li>est allergique au tinzaparin, à tout autre héparine de faible masse moléculaire, à l'héparine, aux sulfites, à l'alcool benzylique ou aux produits du porc;<br></li> <li>a des problèmes de coagulation sanguine, d'autres affections qui augmentent les risques de saignement ou tout saignement actif important;<br></li> <li>a déjà fait une réaction de coagulation sanguine en raison d'une héparine, c'est ce que l'on nomme une thrombocytopénie (diminution du nombre de plaquettes).</li></ul> <h3>Avisez votre médecin ou votre pharmacien si votre enfant souffre de l'une des affections suivantes. Il pourrait s'avérer nécessaire de prendre des précautions avec ce médicament si votre enfant souffre :</h3> <ul><li>de problèmes rénaux ou hépatiques (foie);<br></li> <li>d'ulcères d'estomac<br></li> <li>de pression artérielle élevée</li></ul><h2>Comment administrer ce médicament à votre enfant</h2> <p>La première dose de tinzaparin sera probablement administrée à l'hôpital ou à la clinique. Si votre enfant doit recevoir du tinzaparin à la maison, on s'organisera pour qu'une infirmière vienne donner les injections ou on vous montrera comment faire les injections sous-cutanées à la maison.</p> <p>Si vous donnez les injections à la maison :</p> <ul><li>Assurez-vous de comprendre comment préparer et injecter le tinzaparin et assurez-vous que vous êtes à l'aise avec ce processus, et sachez comment disposer de l'aiguille et de la seringue. <br></li> <li>Veuillez consulter le guide « Administrer le tinzaparin à votre enfant » pour obtenir plus de renseignements.<br></li> <li>Jetez les aiguilles dans un contenant pour la destruction des objets pointus et tranchants.</li></ul> <p>Savoir quelle quantité donner</p> <p>Le tinzaparin est disponible en différentes concentrations.

Ces seringues sont spécialement conçues pour faire des injections dans la peau. Il est important de remarquer que le volume est mesuré en « unités » sur les seringues à insuline et qu'une unité sur la seringue à insuline ne correspond PAS à une unité de tinzaparin.</h3> <p>10 unités sur la seringue à insuline (0,1 ml) = 2 000 unités de tinzaparin.</p> <p><strong>Votre enfant doit recevoir _______ unités de tinzaparin à chaque dose.</strong></p> <p><strong>Cette dose correspond à _______ml de 20 000 unités par ml. Ce qui correspond à _______ unités sur une seringue à insuline.</strong></p> <p>Il est possible que le médecin doive parfois ajuster la dose.

Téléphonez immédiatement à l'équipe des thromboses ou au médecin de votre enfant, ou rendez-vous à la salle d'urgence avec votre enfant, si ce dernier affiche l'un des effets secondaires suivants :</h3> <ul><li>Signes d'une réaction potentiellement mortelle, comme : respiration sifflante, essoufflement, oppression thoracique ou douleur thoracique; fièvre; démangeaisons; toux importante; peau bleutée; visage, lèvres, langue ou gorge enflés <br></li> <li>Éruption cutanée <br></li> <li>Bleu (ecchymose) mauve foncé et profond, ou douleur ou enflure à l'endroit où le liquide a été injecté <br></li> <li>Saignements inhabituels, comme : saignements de nez très longs, sang dans l'urine, tousser ou vomir du sang, saignements où le liquide a été injecté, saignements ou écoulements où l'on a pratiqué la chirurgie <br></li> <li>Selles noires, collantes et poisseuses ou selles qui contiennent des filets rouges</li></ul><h2>Mesures de sécurité à prendre lorsque votre enfant utilise ce médicament</h2> <ul><li>Parlez à votre médecin immédiatement si votre enfant fait une mauvaise chute, particulièrement si votre enfant se frappe la tête.<br></li> <li>Il est important de porter un casque pour tous les sports, comme la bicyclette ou le patin à roues alignées.

L'équipe des thromboses vous en parlera, selon la durée de la prise tinzaparin.</li></ul> <p>Certains médicaments ne devraient pas être pris en même temps que le tinzaparin, ou, dans certains cas, il pourrait s'avérer nécessaire d'ajuster la dose le tinzaparin ou celle de l'autre médicament. Il est important d'informer votre médecin et le pharmacien de tout autre médicament que prend votre enfant (médicaments sur ordonnance, médicaments disponibles sans ordonnance ou médicaments à base d'herbes médicinales), notamment : </p> <ul><li>les anti-inflammatoires non stéroïdiens (AINS), comme l'AAS (aspirine) et <a href="/Article?contentid=153&language=French" target="_blank">l'ibuprofène​</a> (Motrin, Advil) ne peuvent être pris en même temps que le tinzaparin.

Ne donnez jamais les médicaments d'une autre personne à votre enfant.</li><li>Assurez-vous de toujours avoir des réserves suffisantes de tinzaparin pour les fins de semaine, les congés et les vacances. Téléphonez à votre pharmacie pour renouveler vos prescriptions au moins 2 jours avant de finir les médicaments.</li><li>Conservez le tinzaparin à température ambiante dans un endroit frais, sec et à l'abri des rayons du soleil.
