The role of an IG infusion nurse should understand the initial intervention for rate related reactions, including stopping the infusion and assessing the patient’s status, as well as decreasing the rate of infusion.

All side effects should be documented, including mild to moderate rate related reactions such as a headache, nausea, vomiting, and chills.

The blood must be stopped, and then normal saline should be infused to keep the line patent and maintain blood volume. It may also be essential to evaluate the pain in the lumbar area further.

Increase the flow of normal saline

The blood must be stopped at once, and then normal saline should be infused to keep the line patent and maintain blood volume.
