Albumin (Human) 5% is a sterile, liquid preparation of albumin derived from large pools of human plasma. All units of human plasma used in the manufacture of Albumin (Human) 5% are provided by FDA approved blood establishments only. Albumin is responsible for 70-80% of the colloid pressure of normal plasma, thus making it useful in regulating the volume of circulatory blood. Albumin stabilizes circulating blood volume and is a carrier of hormones, enzymes, medicinal products and toxins.
Restoration and maintenance of circulating blood volume where volume deficiency has been demonstrated, and use of a colloid is appropriate.
The choice of albumin rather than artificial colloid will depend on the clinical situation of the individual patient, based on official recommendations.
Albumin is indicated for:
Hypovolemia, Hypoalbuminemia, Prevention of central volume depletion after paracentesis due to cirrhotic ascites
