Blood Transfusion: Intravenous Immune Globulin (IVIg)

Intravenous immune globulin (IVIG) is a blood product manufactured from large pools of human plasma. While IVIG is generally prescribed by a specialist, patients are often maintained and followed-up by a family physician.

This module will focus on the processes for ordering IVIG and monitoring for adverse events.

Blood Transfusion: Adverse Transfusion Reactions (ATRs)

An adverse transfusion reaction (ATR) is an undesirable and unintended physiological response during or after the administration of blood components or plasma derived blood products. This module will focus on identifying ATRs and the actions required when an ATR is occurring.
