From what I was able to gather, I believe D5050 is administered to a patient who is experiencing hypoglycemia; the low amount of sugar in the blood.

It's difficult to find information on this medication, however I did find that it has some connection with hypertonic glucose (D50W); which is basically a form of carbohydrate. This goes hand in hand with a patient who is experiencing hypoglycemia.

Special Considerations

Draw blood sample before administration if possible.
Use blood-glucose reagent strips (Dextrostix) or glucometer before administration if possible.
Extravasation may cause tissue necrosis; use a large vein and aspirate occasionally to ensure route patency.
D50 sometimes precipitates severe neurological symptoms (Wernicke's encephalopathy) in thiamine-deficient patients such as alcoholics. (This can be prevented by administering 100 mg of thiamine, IV.)
