All about Rabies
Cat 1 – Wound wash
Cat 2 – Only Rabies vaccine- Indirab
Cat 3 – Vaccine + IG – Indirab + Equirab
How to prepare vaccines!?
-Mix diluent and indirab
-take 8 marks of the mixture in insulin syringe
-give 4 parts on each arm ID
Equirab test dose:
-Take 2 parts equirab in insulin syringe
– fill the same syringe with NS upto 20 mark
– give the test dose on the right forearm ID
– circle the site and write T followed by the time of test dose
Equirab loading dose:
-fill a normal syringe with equirab according to the dose calculated
Imagine you are the Casualty Medical Officer, How to calculate the Equirab dose?
Equirab dose (ml)=40x Weight of patient in kg/300 IU
From where did this formula come?
Equirab (IU)= Weight of patient (kg) x 40
Now we have to convert IU into ml.
1 vial of Equirab is of 5ml containing 1500IU. So, 1ml of Equirab contains 300IU
So divide it by 300!
Rx Inj.Indirab 0.1 ml OED OED- On Each Deltoid
Rx Inj. Equirab 40 IU/Kg Eg. For a 53 kg individual, 2120IU= 7.07 ml
