How administer iron hemodialysis

Monica Utley
Studies have shown that IV iron therapy, in conjunction with EPO, is essential in managing anemia in patients on hemodialysis. In addition, data have shown that IV iron therapy can be safely administered during hemodialysis, whether performed at home or in the center. Nurses should be aware of how to administer this therapy and be knowledgable of possible allergic-type reactions that have been associated with its clinical use.
