Side Effects

Allergic reactions, nausea, vomiting, increased salivation, fever and chills; vascular overload, haemodilution and pulmonary oedema.

Introduction

Human albumin increases intravascular oncotic pressure and causes movement of fluids from interstitial into intravascular space. Human albumin solutions are available in various concentrations. Solutions containing 5% human albumin are usually used in hypovolemic patients, whereas more concentrated 25% solutions are recommended in patients in whom fluid and sodium intake must be minimised e.g. patients with hypoproteinaemia or cerebral oedema or in paediatric patients.

Albumin Human Precaution

Hypertension or low cardiac reserve; additional fluids for dehydrated patients. Monitor for signs of cardiac overload in injured or postoperative patients. May carry risk of viral transmission. Volume admin and rate of infusion must always be individualised according to situation and response.
