The infusion rate for blood products depends on the clinical context, age and cardiac status of the patient. In stable, non-bleeding adult patients typical administrations details are:
Red cells: 1-3 hours
Platelets: 15-30 minutes
Fresh frozen plasma: 30 minutes
Cryoprecipitate: 30-60 minutes per standard adult dose
