    Good Morning


      I have attached a Ritux ‘cheat sheet” along with the rate calculation work sheet I use to teach and have available to all on a share point drive.  I has really helped with the understanding of the drug and how to infuse it.  We highly encourage the worksheet, you know nurses love paper and charts  so this works well.


    Let me know if you have any additional questions.  ��

    Hello!  We have had a increase amount of infusion reactions with Rituximab.  What are the max rates that your hospital infuses Rituximab?  Do you mind sharing your protocol? 

    Thank you,
