vit k adminstration


Recommended Posts

My preference will be to give FFP only after assessing the whole situation (i.e address the etiology). In my unit all the babies get VitK at birth and we rarely repeat it. There is plenty of evidence that initial vit K given IM works as a depot and therefore provides sufficient duration of additional vit K to protect for deficiency.
