I recently had a request to give one of our patient IV Boniva at home
Does anyone have any expierence with htis therapy?
Boone Hospital Center
We have not done any home Boniva but give a fair amount in our AIC. It is given over 30 seconds, the kit comes with a prefilled syringe, alcohol wipes and a 23 g butterfly. We have noted some irritation in smaller veins. I would recommend you avoid the hand and go for a larger vein, and flush with Saline after the infusion.
Contact your rep from Roche they are happy to come out and do an inservie for you
