If you suffer from hemophilia, a serious blood condition, you may be able to use an infusion mat to self-infuse your own blood. By using a special type of hemophilia treatment known as "compact blood cells" in this way, you can save money on expensive hospital treatments that are not effective for you. Your health care provider will provide the self-infusion kit. The following are the steps required to collect a self-infusion kit:
If you have been diagnosed with hemophilia, your doctor may have told you that it is impossible for you to self-infuse your own blood. However, many people with hemophilia do self-infuse. For these individuals, a convenient and relatively inexpensive self-infusion kit is available. To find the appropriate self-infusion kit for you, check out the American Association of Blood Banks or the American Association of Clinical Venetian Banks.
An infusion mat is a small plastic container that can be used to collect a small amount of blood. You may want to consider getting two different sizes to collect enough blood for a higher dosage of an anti-inflammatory medication or pain reliever. These kits usually come in larger plastic containers or a disposable plastic bag. They contain instructions and safety guidelines on how to use the kit. To use the infusion kit, first put the small plastic bag inside the larger plastic container, then fill up the large bag with the collected blood and close the lid.
Then, you insert a sterile needle into the plastic container or the reusable polypropylene top and draw a small amount of blood. The amount of blood that you are drawn from depends on the instructions that come along with the produce mate antiviral and blood collection kit. Next, remove the needle from the plastic bag or the disposable polypropylene top and insert it into the hole in your thumb. Then close the lid and shake or swirl the contents to mix the blood together.
Once this mixture is mixed, you can now inject the contents of the plastic bag into your veins just as you would to make an infusion. The injector pump will then make a suction that draws the fluid up into the cannula, and into your veins where it is needed. Last, but not least, the produce mate antimicrobial and blood collection kit will help you make a better home for the little bacteria and organisms that thrive in your kitchen and your sink. So, if you find yourself working in a public sink and looking for a healthier way to clean that sink, consider using the Infusion Mat to help you eliminate rotting food.
