I am a new grad RN and I havea question! I am curious as to how fast you run IVIG in a pt?
For example: If a 90kg person was to get 30g (300mL) of IVIG, what rate would you run it at?
I am unsure and would really appreciate you help!
THanks so much,

We step up IVIG at our hosptial. They changed the step up, now it is 1/2 per kg per 30 min then 1 per kg for 30min then any where from 1.5 to 2 per kg for remainder. Most of the kids get IVIG every month that we see. So for 90kg we would run at 45 for 1st 30 min then 90 for 2nd 30 min. then bump them up to full speed. Of course monitoring their VS per protocol.
