Management, rabies

Passive post-exposure prophylaxis

Human RIG should be used concomitantly with the first dose of vaccine.

Dose of RIG is 20 IU/kg of body weight.

As much of the dose as possible should be used to infiltrate the wound(s). Dilute if needed for large wounds.

The remainder is given intramuscularly using a separate syringe and needle.

Vaccine should be administered in a different site.

Purified equine RIG or antisera containing rabies antibodies is available outside the United States
