How much does FFP increase fibrinogen?
Besides, how much does Cryo increase fibrinogen?
Cryo is generally transfused in pools of 10 units, which should increase an adult recipient's fibrinogen level by 50-100 mg/dL. Pediatric dosing for Cyro is 1 unit per 10kg body weight, which should increase fibrinogen by 60-100 mg/dL.
Additionally, how many FFP does it take to correct INR?
Based on the information available, both time to administration (limited by thawing time) and dose of FFP play a role in rapid reversal of elevated INR levels. From the studies presented above, 3-4 units of FFP are needed to decrease an INR.
A unit of FFP is usually administered over 30 minutes. 170 - 200 micron filter is required (standard blood administration set). Once thawed, cryoprecipitate must not be re-frozen and should be used immediately. If delay is unavoidable, the component should be stored at ambient temperature and used within 4 hours.
