Couple of days ago there was a question re Iloprost. After reading the replies I am wondering if maybe the decimal point is being put in the wrong place eg. people stating they receive 10ml per hour when, in fact, it is 1.0ml per hour. The reason I say this is because at my hospital the protocol is determined by weight. I weigh 9st and recently I went in for a daily 6-hour infusion over 5 days. I started the infusion at 0.9ml - if I was able to tolerate I would have gone up to 1.7ml and then 2.6ml for the rest of the infusion. However, I am not able to go much beyond 0.9 comfortably. However, of course, maybe different hospitals have different ways of doing things.
