Reply To: Irritated veins from IVIG?

Thanks Bill!   So, funny you mention that about the D5/saline issue.. I noticed at my infusion on monday that they just hooked the saline right up to my iv after my ivig.. I realized then that they hadn’t used D5 to flush the past several infusions.. I asked about it, and they said that just a few months back it came out that it was now ok/compatible to use saline with the gammunex and you dn’t have to flush with D5 in between.. I wasn’t sure if i should believe this or not, as I don’t have a ton of faith in the infusion people from past experience, so wasn’t sure if they were just telling me that due to htem forgetting- have you heard anything like that – that the compatability has now been disproven?
