IVIG flow rate

Hi Cindy and thanks, I appreciate your response and I understand what your saying. Sometimes I do take IV benedryl (spelling?), phenergan and tylenol. Usually nothing, but this time benedryl IV and Tylenol tablets and I slept through most of it, but before when I would be in a hurry and ask for a faster rate, the nurses always told me they “never” gave it faster than 120. Also, I always had an EKG and blood work for BUN and creatinin just before and not this time with this new doc in the same military hospital where I have always had my treatments. Prior to this last treatment, the doc preached to me about the cost. He has been at this hospital one year and that was when 90% of the patient’s were put on a different plan of treatment. That is why I’m concerned with what I recieved. Still, they did monitor my BP and temp every 15 minutes. My e-mail is [email]susie_br549@hotmail.com[/email]
Thanks, Susie
