n. Symbol Na
A soft, light, extremely malleable silver-white element that is an alkali metal, reacts violently with water, is naturally abundant in combined forms, especially in common salt, and is used in the production of a wide variety of industrially important compounds. Sodium ions are essential to numerous biological processes in animals. Atomic number 11; atomic weight 22.9898; melting point 97.80°C; boiling point 883°C; specific gravity 0.971 (20°C); valence 1. See Periodic Table.

sodium

(ˈsəʊdɪəm)
n
(Elements & Compounds)
a. a very reactive soft silvery-white element of the alkali metal group occurring principally in common salt, Chile saltpetre, and cryolite. Sodium and potassium ions maintain the essential electrolytic balance in living cells. It is used in the production of chemicals, in metallurgy, and, alloyed with potassium, as a cooling medium in nuclear reactors. Symbol: Na; atomic no: 11; atomic wt: 22.989768; valency: 1; relative density: 0.971; melting pt: 97.81±0.03°C; boiling pt: 892.9°C
b. (as modifier): sodium light.
[C19: New Latin, from soda + -ium]

Iron gluconate is a sodium ferric gluconate complex in sucrose and is indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency in dialysis-associated anemia in patients receiving erythropoietin therapy (e-CPS, 2012, Ferrlecit).
Several recent studies demonstrated that IV iron, sodium ferric gluconate (SFG) administered to patients with elevated SF, and low TSAT levels improved hematological responses, and at the same time, decreased ESA requirement (Daniel et al.
The other drugs reviewed that also had no new safety concerns were antineoplastic agent irinotecan (Camptosar), antineoplastic agent carboplatin (Paraplatin), platelet-reducing agent anagrelide (Agrylin), and hematinic agent sodium ferric gluconate complex (Ferrclecit).
We used the form of iron gluconate currently used in Europe and approved for use in the US, sodium ferric gluconate complex in sucrose (Ferrlecit), from R & D Laboratories, and iron dextran (InFed) from Schein Pharmaceuticals.
There are three IV iron products available in Canada: iron dextran (DexIron[R], Infufer[R]), sodium ferric gluconate (Ferrlecit[R]), and iron sucrose (Venofer[R]).
Continuous intravenous sodium ferric gluconate improves efficacy in the maintenance phase of EPOrHu administration in hemodialysis patients.

Non-dextran iron preparations, such as sodium ferric gluconate complex and iron sucrose, are associated with fewer adverse events and do not require a test dose (Chertow et al.
The improvements were attributed to a switch from iron sucrose to sodium ferric gluconate, an increase in patients receiving IV iron therapy with ESA therapy, the consistent adherence to the new protocol, and the overall improvement in patient care.
In step 2, patients receive a maintenance dose of IV sodium ferric gluconate of either 31.
Patients were randomized to receive IV iron (1 g of sodium ferric gluconate administered over 8 hemodialysis sessions) or no IV iron.
