Usual Adult Dose for Hemophilia A

Although dosage must be individualized according to the needs of the patient (weight, severity of hemorrhage, presence of inhibitors), the following general dosages are suggested:
Number of AHF I.U. required = (body weight (in kg) x desired Factor VIII increase (% normal)) x 0.5

Dosage necessary to maintain the therapeutic plasma level bases on bleeding episode:

Minor hemorrhage (superficial, early hemorrhages, hemorrhages into joints): Therapeutically necessary plasma level of FVIII activity is 20% to 40% of normal, repeated every 12 to 24 hours as necessary until resolved. (At least 1 day, depending upon the severity of the bleeding episode.)
Moderate (bleeding into muscles, mild head trauma, bleeding into the oral cavity): Therapeutically necessary plasma level of FVIII activity is 30% to 60% of normal, repeated every 12 to 24 hours for 3-4 days or until adequate local hemostasis is achieved.
Major (gastrointestinal bleeding, intracranial, intraabdominal or intrathoracic bleeding, fractures): Therapeutically necessary plasma level of FVIII activity is 60% to 100 % of normal, repeated every 8 to 24 hours until bleeding is resolved, resolved, or in the case of surgery, until adequate local hemostasis and wound healing are achieved.
