IVIG infusion

Post by kareema » Wed Nov 23, 2016 4:46 am

Hi everyone,

Is it okay to infuse the IVIG after the 10th day from the onset of the disease? will it still prevent heart complications?

I believe that IVIG infusion might help after 10th Day of illness. If the fever persists after 10 days, there is a need to use the infusion. Heart complications may occur up to 6th week of illness.
