CSL Behring Albumeon is a substitute for plasma.
Albumin stabilises the circulating blood volume. It is a carrier of hormones, enzymes, medicinal products and toxins. The albumin protein in Albumeon is taken from human blood plasma. Therefore the albumin works exactly as if it was your own protein.
Albumeon is used to restore and stabilize the circulating blood volume. It is normally used under intensive care situations, when your blood volume has decreased critically. This may be the case due to severe loss of blood after an injury or due to a large surface burn.
The choice of using Albumeon will be made by your doctor. It will depend on your individual clinical situation.

A vial of 100 ml contains at least 19.2 g of human albumin.
A vial of 50 ml contains at least 9.6 g of human albumin.
