b'OPTIMIZING SCIG INFUSIONSAn Optimized Infusion is Key to Patient SatisfactionAt KORU, we believe that the patient should always come first. Learn how to provide better outcomes for your patients, which, in turn, will help minimize dropout.Every patient has to balance lifestyle, tolerability, infusion time, and number of needle sites.Some variables that impact patient tolerability include: Infusion site selection and volume infused per site Optimal needle length in relation to the amount of sub-q tissue and body shape Number of needlesInfusion flow ratePump type (electric vs. mechanic) Initial vs. subsequent infusion parameters Determining the Best Flow RateSelecting the proper Precision Flow Rate Tubing is important when starting your patient on SCIg therapy. It may be trial and error to find which flow rate works best.*For patients who want to decrease overall infusion time, increasing the flow rate is recommended. F or patients experiencing site reactions, it is recommended to decrease the flow rate.*Reference your drug package insert for initial dosing parameters Choosing the Optimal Needle LengthIf the selected needle is too short and the opening is too close to the dermis, site irritation and leaking may occur. Generally: infants use 4 mm, children (up to age 9) and patient with extremely low body fat use 6 mm, over age 9 and adults use 9 mmand/or 12 mm, and very large adults use 14 mm.Drug Volume and Needle SitesWhen determining the best infusion sites, remember that every body is different.Utilizing more sites will keep the volume per site low and help to reduce site reactions.Needles should be inserted dry, about 2 apart on either the back of arms, side of upper hip, abdomen and thighs.5| KORU Q2 2021'
