Answer

Disposition of treatment is as follows:

  • Management ideally should be provided through a comprehensive hemophilia care center

  • Home administration of treatment and infusions by the family or patient is customary

  • FVIII treatment may be given prophylactically or on demand

  • Hospitalization is reserved for severe or life-threatening bleeds or for patients for whom home infusion is unavailable or impractical
