Indications for the hyrophilic polymer PEG include acute spinal cord injury, IVDD, traumatic brain injury, spinal fracture/luxation, FCE, and other ischemic spinal cord conditions. The dose is 2 ml/kg IV slow over 20 minutes with a repeat dose in 6 hours. A constant rate infusion up to 24 hours can also be administered at the rate of .16 ml/kg/hr. At Valley Central we obtain our PEG from Wedgewood Pharmacy 1-800-331-8272. It's a 50 ml bottle, 30% concentration. Owner consent is required as the drug is off label. Dr. Carlos
