Answer

Blood Products

These agents are used to improve the clinical aspects of the disease.

Fresh Frozen Plasma

Infuse prior to airway manipulation (eg, dental extraction) to prevent angioedema. Administering 2 units of fresh frozen plasma (FFP) sustains complement control and prevents the development of angioedema. Improved screening programs greatly reduce risk of hepatitis. FFP is not recommended for treatment of acute attacks.
