Intravenous Administration Only.
The concentration of the albumin preparation, dosage, and infusion-rate should be adjusted to the patient's individual requirements and indication.
|Hypovolemia||Adults: Initial dose of 25 g is suggested. Pediatric dosage should be adjusted based upon on age, weight and clinical conditions|
|Prevention of Central Volume Depletion after Paracentesis due to Cirrhotic Ascites||Adults: 6-8 g for every 1000 mL of ascitic fluid removed|
|OHSS||Adults: 50-100 g over 4 hours and repeated at 4-12 hour intervals as necessary. 10-50 g: single infusion|
|ARDS||Adults: 25 g over 30 minutes and repeated at 8 hours for 3 days if necessary|
|Burns||The amount of albumin required to achieve adequate plasma volume and protein content should be determined by direct observation of vital signs or measurement of either plasma oncotic pressure or protein content|
|Cardiopulmonary Bypass||Required dose can be estimated from the difference between the desired and actual total serum protein concentration multiplied by the estimated plasma volume (approximately 40mL per kg) times 2 (to account for extravascular deficit, which absorbs about half of the administered dose)|
