Reply To: What's your typical reaction to your IVIG treatments?

Do you mean Plasma Exchange which is the same thing as Plasmapheresis (see recent post here in forum)? Those are not the same as IVIG infusion.

Thinking about it though, maybe it depends on the context plasma infusion was used in. I havent heard that term before, but IG is part of blood plasma and extracted from donors so I suppose IVIG could be considered a type of plasma infusion/transfusion but as mentioned, I havent heard of IVIG referred to like that. Hopefully someone more experienced will be along and clear it up.
