Important Safety Information
Suspicion of an allergic reaction or anaphylaxis requires an immediate cessation of infusion and the implementation of appropriate medical care.
Hypervolemia can occur if the dose and infusion rate do not adjust to the patient’s volume status. In the first clinical signs of cardiovascular overload (headache, dyspnea, jugular venous distention, increased blood pressure), the infusion must be slowed or stopped immediately. Use albumin with caution in conditions where hypervolemia and its consequences or hemodilution can represent special risks for patients.
The colloidal-osmotic effect of human albumin is 25% about five times that of blood plasma. Therefore, when concentrated albumin is given, care must be taken to ensure adequate hydration in the patient. Patients must be monitored carefully to prevent over circulation and hyperhydration.
Albumin is a derivative of human blood. Based on an effective donor screening and product manufacturing process, it carries a huge risk for transmission of viral diseases. The theoretical risk for transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is also considered very far. No cases of viral disease or CJD transmission have been identified for ALBUMINEX 5% or ALBUMINEX 25%.
The most common adverse reactions associated with infusion of human albumin solution are harshness, hypotension / decreased BP, tachycardia / increased heart rate, fever, feelings of cold (coldness), nausea, vomiting, dyspnea / bronchospasm, rash / pruritus. The reaction usually disappears when the infusion is slowed or stopped.
