Purpose A single center, prospective study was performed to assess the efficacy and safety of Griflow® Dual–-a gravity-fed device for intravenous delivery of human immunoglobulin Flebogamma®. Methods A total of 2 infusions in 2 visits per patient were assessed using G2 and G3 Griflow® Dual models that provide different flow rates adjusted to the patient's weight. To follow the most common method of intravenous immunoglobulin administration, infusion through the two-way device commenced with the… Expand
