    Hello Ana
    we administer subcutaneous deferoxamine to our patients at home, if the patient is willing to admit we prefer the IV route.
    S/C administration only for out patients.

    I am reaching out to see if any institution has a policy for continuous subcutaneous deferoxamine?

    I would appreciate anything that you would be willing to share.
