NOTE:  TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR ACUTE PATIENTS WITH RECURRING ATTACKS DURING COVID-19 CRISIS: 

Acute patients with recurring attacks may need an option for Panhematin treatment as Emergency Departments (ED) and Hospitals (for inpatient treatment) are overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients. 

Treatment at an infusion center may be the next best option. To prepare for this: 

  1. 1. Contact your physician as they will need to coordinate advance arrangements and ensure that they have privileges at an infusion center to order Panhematin.
  2. 2. Bring information to infusion center staff who may not be educated on Panhematin dosing and administration.
