The human antihemophilic factor is a natural protein process in the blood that helps in clotting; therefore, the lack of antihemophilic factor VIII in our bloodstream causes hemophilia A. Humate-P functions to increase the antihemophillic factor VIII in the blood to aid in the clotting process.
Humate-P is commonly used to treat bleeding episodes in both adults and children suffering from hemophilia A and is administered to patients with hemophilia during surgery or dental operations.
Patients suffering from hemophilia A use Humate-P to aid in blood clotting. This naturally produced substance is used to activate human antihemophilic factor VIII to decrease bleeding episodes. Physicians may also use this medication to treat other diseases that normally occur in our blood.
Patients taking Humate-P should inspect the medication carefully. It should be clear and free from any solid particles or discoloration. In most cases, this medication comes in a bag and it should be checked for leaks before being administered.
Follow the prescription exactly as written by your physician when administering Humate-P. Do not stop the treatment unless advised to do so by your physician. Stopping it midway might cause the disease to worsen. Humate-P is given by vein infusion by an expert to avoid any complications.
The most common side effects include dizziness, sore throat, headache, itching, emesis, upset stomach or stomach aches, and tiredness. Infection at the infusion site is common as well. If you experience any of these conditions, consult your physician immediately.
Rare symptoms include an increase in the patient's pulse rate, rashes or hives on the skin, unusual bruising or bleeding, breathing problems, discomfort or tightness on your chest, chilling, and pyrexia. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention to avoid further complications that might prove to be fatal if left unchecked.
You should undergo a complete medical examination in order to determine whether it's safe for you to take the medication or not. During this examination, you should also disclose a full medical history. This should include any allergic reactions to foods or medicaments, any other medicaments you are taking (prescription or non-prescription), if you are suffering from other diseasees or if you are pregnant or may become pregnant during the treatment. All of this information is necessary so your physician can determine if it's safe for you to take Humate-P. Women that become pregnant during treatment should consult with their physician immediately. It is also advised to talk with your physician if you are planning to have a surgical or dental operation.
Humate-P must be stored properly, away from direct contact with heat and sunlight, in a refrigerator at the prescribed temperature.
