During Your Infusion
Each infusion lasts about 20 to 50 minutes. A healthcare professional will always be there to:
Check your weight
on the day of your infusion to make sure the dose of CINQAIR® is personalized for you.
Record your vital signs
and make sure you’re comfortable.
Routinely monitor you
during the infusion and for an appropriate time afterwards for any signs of an allergic reaction.
If you experience any reaction, contact your healthcare provider right away. Allergic reactions, including serious allergic reactions known as anaphylaxis, can happen anytime, including right after you receive your CINQAIR® infusion. These reactions can cause a life-threatening emergency.
After Your Infusion
You should be able to resume your normal schedule.
Schedule your infusion treatments for every 4 weeks!
It’s important to stick with the treatment plan your doctor has prescribed, even if you are feeling better.
