Pump Rates Too High

May 12, 2010 at 12:34 am

I’m reading the pump rates and am feeling utterly astounded. My neuro NEVER lets anyone go over “180” and that just for a few folks who can tolerate it.

I do “90” max for 50 grams and it takes 1 1/2 hours to raise it from 15-20 up to “90”. If the rate is increased too quickly or too high I feel muscle spasms/headaches hitting me full force. My total infusion time is 7 hours.
My last nurse got fired because she ran my pump at “125” and I got so ill.

Is this something that done in Canada?? How many hours does your infusion take??
Please read up on safe infusion rates. This Forum is great for finding answers/ideas to infusion/IVIG problems.

Gee-400-no way.
