Introduction to Albucel Ls 20gm Injection 100ml

Albucel LS 20gm injection 100ml contains human albumin as the active constituent. It consists of a liquid albumin preparation prepared from human plasma. It is administered to replace lost blood or body fluids due to conditions such as excessive bleeding, surgery, or kidney dialysis. It helps restore and maintain blood volume. This medicine can be given to both adults and children. Albumin is a protein that helps maintain the osmotic pressure between the blood vessels and tissue. It is responsible for regulating fluid balance. 

Volume deficiencies may occur during certain medical conditions or treatments, such as surgery, shock, severe trauma, liver failure, dialysis, and burn therapy. Albucel LS 20gm injection 100ml is commonly used to address these deficiencies. However, as this drug is obtained from human plasma, there is a higher chance of viral infections in patients who receive frequent infusions. To mitigate the risk of viral infections, your doctor may administer vaccines for Hepatitis A and B before initiating the infusion. These vaccines help protect against these specific viral infections. Before receiving this injection, talk to your physician if you have hypertension, severe anemia, heart disease, lung inflammation, or breathing difficulty. Do not receive this drug if you are allergic or have had previous allergic reactions to Human albumin. 

When using Albucel LS 20gm injection 100ml, it is important to undergo blood pressure monitoring and regular blood tests. Your physician may also monitor your electrolyte levels to assess the status of your blood circulatory functions.
