Reply To: How many ports out there?

IVIg doesn’t require a port. If one wanted to speed up their infusion time, a PICC line would be able to handle a larger volume than an IV line. A port is for high volume treatments such as Plasma Exchange. Ports come with a higher risk of infection and require regular maintenance. Please see my more detailed posts about ports elsewhere in the forums.
