BayCuff – a simple way to practice self-infusing before doing it for real

Bayer recognizes that learning to self-infuse can sometimes be daunting. This hands-on training system may help give you the skills you need to self-infuse with confidence.

What is BayCuff?

BayCuff is an adjustable cuff worn on the hand or arm that allows you to practice the technique of self-infusion without actually infusing into your veins.

 

With the protective plate, multiple tubing veins, instructions and other supplies that come as part of BayCuff, you can practice self-infusing as many times as needed before feeling confident enough to infuse for real.

 

Caregivers can also use the cuff to learn to administer home infusions to others.

 

We recommend that you initially use BayCuff with the assistance of your healthcare provider.

 

To learn more about BayCuff, download the BayCuff Booklet (PDF).

 Indications

Kogenate® FS Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant) is a medicine used to replace clotting factor (factor VIII or antihemophilic factor) that is missing in people with hemophilia A.

Kogenate FS is used to treat and control bleeding in adults and children with hemophilia A. Your healthcare provider may give you Kogenate FS when you have surgery. Kogenate FS can reduce the number of bleeding episodes in adults and children when used regularly (prophylaxis). Kogenate FS can reduce the risk of joint damage in children without pre-existing joint damage when used regularly.

Kogenate FS is not used to treat von Willebrand disease.

 Important Safety Information

You should not use Kogenate FS if you are allergic to rodents (like mice and hamsters) or are allergic to any ingredients in  Kogenate FS.

Tell your healthcare provider if you have been told you have heart disease or are at risk for heart disease.

You could have an allergic reaction to Kogenate FS. Call your healthcare provider right away and stop treatment if you get rash or hives, itching, tightness of the chest or throat, difficulty breathing, light-headed, dizziness, nausea or a decrease in blood pressure.

Your body can make antibodies, called “inhibitors,” against Kogenate FS, which may stop Kogenate FS from working properly. Consult with your healthcare provider to make sure you are carefully monitored with blood tests for the development of inhibitors to factor VIII.

Other common side effects of Kogenate FS are local injection site reactions (pain, swelling, irritation at infusion site) and infections from implanted injection device. Tell your healthcare provider about any side effect that bothers you or does not go away.

Call your healthcare provider right away if bleeding is not controlled after using Kogenate FS.
