Albutein Infusion


Overview

Introduction

Albutein Infusion is used to treat blood volume loss. It works by replacing the body fluids lost due to excessive trauma, bleeding, surgery, or kidney dialysis. Thus, it is helpful in treating low blood albumin levels.

Albutein Infusion must be administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional. You should not take it if you have any known allergy from this injection. Before taking it, inform the doctor you are suffering from any severe heart disease.

Your doctor may check your blood pressure and ask you to get regular blood tests done while you are using this injection. The most common side effects include flushing (sense of warmth in the face, ears, neck, and trunk), nausea and fever.

Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or suffering from kidney diseases as a dose adjustment may be required. This injection is safe to use in patients suffering from liver diseases.

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Vomiting
    You can help yourself by eating small, frequent meals rather than large ones and drinking plenty of fluids. Eat slowly. Avoid fatty, fried, spicy and very sweet foods. Eat cold or slightly warm food if the smell of cooked or cooking food makes you feel sick. Get plenty of fresh air. You could also try chewing ginger or drinking ginger tea.

There are some medicines that can help you stop feeling sick. Speak to your doctor if your condition does not improve.
  • Coping with Flushing (sense of warmth in the face, ears, neck and trunk)
    Sip cold or iced drinks. Try cutting down on coffee, tea and alcohol. It might help to keep the room cool and use a fan. You could also spray cool water on your face. Wear layers of light clothing that you can easily take off if you overheat. Breathe deeply and try to relax. Have a lukewarm shower or bath instead of a hot one. Avoid smoking and cut down on alcohol. The flushing should go away after a few days. If it does not go away or causes problems, contact your doctor. There may be medicines that can help.
