How do I reconstitute and administer PCC?

10

There are 2 PCC brands in Canada. PCC reconstitution depends on the brand being used, so refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for reconstitution. Some transfusion laboratories will reconstitute PCC, but in some hospitals the clinical team performs the reconstitution.

PCC must be administered intravenously and should not be mixed with other products.
