Reply To: Irritated veins from IVIG?

Bill, I don’t see globulin “does not like saline” in that document, or any indication that IvIg is not compatible with normal saline. Whom are you quoting?

Either dextrose (d-glucose) or normal saline is given intra venously because they are compatible with the blood. I don’t see how saline could be a problem since the blood is saline.
