The importance of vein care

Tips to ensure optimal vein health for patients self-administering RUCONEST

RUCONEST can be self-administered by appropriately trained patients, so it's important that you do everything you can to take care of your veins. Below are some tips to help keep your veins healthy and viable.

Vein Care Dos:
  • Find a well-lit area to do your infusion
  • Make sure to alternate arms when infusing your RUCONEST doses
  • When choosing a vein, look for one that feels bouncy, not stiff or rolling!
  • Use a tourniquet to apply pressure and help your vein become more prominent for easier access
  • Stay hydrated
Vein Care Don'ts:
  • Don't rush. Staying calm will help you to easily access your veins
  • Don't use veins that are red, inflamed, or sore to touch
  • Don't forget to remove the tourniquet — leaving it on for a long time may cause damage to your veins

Important Note: Veins that are red or inflamed may be a sign of infection. Infusing with an infected vein may cause permanent damage. Talk to your healthcare provider about what you can do to treat red or inflamed veins.
