Usual dosages of heparin are between 2000 and 10 000 IU; in complex interventions and high-risk patients heparin should be monitored by activated clotting time (ACT) measurements (keeping the ACT around 250 seconds). Bivalirudin is a relatively novel direct thrombin inhibitor which is administered in a fixed dose and infusion by kg body weight. Similarly, Gp IIbIIIa inhibitors are given adjusted to the patient’s body weight. The dosage of lytics depends on the substance and indication.

Alternatively isotonic sodium bicarbonate solution may be used at the same rates Acetylcysteine at 600 mg bid before and on the day of the intervention Use low volume of low- or iso-osmolal contrast medium in patients at higher risk for CM-ARF No prophylactic use of hemodialysis or hemofiltration documented allergies against contrast media who need to have re-exposure may benefit from pretreatment with corticosteroids and antihistamines.
