Along with regulatory requirements mandated by the CDC and The Joint Commission, managing risk is a key factor in determining patient care protocol. As clinical administrators develop the protocols for their organization, they research clinical evidence and data for support. When it comes to intravenous IV administration of medication and fluids, there are several guidelines and requirements each organization must strictly adhere to.
Each Healthcare provider or health system determines its own policies and protocols to meet regulatory requirements and provide specific guidelines for clinical staff. Note: This requirement covers short- and long-term central venous catheters and peripherally inserted central catheter PICC lines.
A non-kinking tubing adaptor for an intravenous catheter and associated tube being constructed for connection to a flexible intravenous tubing. R 3 Baxter Healthcare Corporation Interlink Catheter Extension Sets effective date Feb.
The present invention generally relates to an intravenous catheter and associated flexible tubing for use with a patient and more particularly to a non-kinking tubing adaptor for an intravenous catheter and associate flexible tubing. Intravenous IV catheters are well known in the medical field and are used for a wide variety of applications including hydration and administration of medications, feeding and blood transfusions.
A typical intravenous infusion system includes a catheter for penetrating the skin and underlining vein of the patient usually in the patient’s forearm or hand, a source of fluid and flexible plastic tubing interconnecting the source of fluid and the intravenous catheter. It is common practice to secure the intravenous catheter and a portion of its associated flexible tubing to the limb of the patient to minimize movement of the catheter relative to the limb. This is normally accomplished with adhesive tape.
A loop is normally formed in the end of the flexible tubing that connects to the intravenous catheter. It is important that the loop be secured to the limb of the patient in a manner so as to avoid kinking the flexible tubing which would result in a shut-off of the fluid through the tubing.

C A licensed health care professional who is not a registered nurse may teach a portion of the intravenous therapy continuing education course provided: 1 The licensed health care professional teaches at the direction of a registered nurse instructor; and. The minimum curriculum for a continuing education course in intravenous therapy, required by section A Shall include , but is not limited to, the following components: 1 Policies and procedures of both the Ohio board of nursing and the employing agency relating to intravenous therapy and accountability and responsibility of the licensed practical nurse in the performance of limited intravenous therapy procedures;.
IV therapy is a standard part of patient care, and as a nurse you will be spiking and priming thousands of IV bags over your career. This skills takes a little bit of practice, but once you learn it, you will never forget it. This means you will be penetrating the IV bag with the spike of the IV tubing into the spiking port of the IV bag so the contents can flow into the IV tubing and then into the patient. This means you will allow the solution in the IV bag to flow through the tubing to remove air.
Place directly on IV tubing to help simplify documentation and clarify IV procedures Orange Wraparound IV Tubing Changed Date and Time Label, 1 RL.
Hello all! For my CNS program I have to design a quality improvement project. Our policy is tubing is to be changed every 72 hours while catheters can be changed within hours. Tape the tubing labels to the IV admin set they do not come in the set and the labels are currently in a completely different room than the IV admin sets. There is no good place in our charting system to do this. Require RN ‘s to write IV and tubing change dates on the pt’s white board currently some RN ‘s write the catheter change date, but not all.
Have an inservice to educate staff a lot of RN ‘s aren’t sure what the policy actually is. Specializes in Vascular Access, Infusion Therapy. Feb 15, My first thought is why are you changing the tubing every 72 hours and what kind of tubing?

An intermittent IV medication may be called a piggyback medication, a secondary medication, or a mini bag medication see Figure 7. Intravenous medications may be given in small volumes of sterile IV solution 25 to ml and infused over a desired amount of time given for 30 minutes every 4 hours or as a single dose. Many medications must be given slowly to prevent harm to the patient, and this method of administration reduces the risk of rapid infusion. A piggyback medication is given through an established IV line that is kept patent by a continuous IV solution or by flushing a short venous access device saline lock.
An intermittent medication may be administered by gravity or on an electronic infusion device EID , also known as an infusion IV pump. Many piggyback IV medications must be on an IV pump, which requires programming and specialized training to prevent medication errors. The IV infusion pumps provide hard- and soft-dose limits and safety practice guidelines to aid in safe medication administration Lynn, IV medications may also be given by gravity infusion, in which case the health care provider must calculate the infusion rate for drops per minute.
The best practice for piggyback infusions is to use an IV infusion pump. Figure 7. At times, a volume-controlled intermittent infusion set may be used to deliver medication for children, older adults, or critically ill patients where fluid volume is a concern. A volume-controlled intermittent set is a small device attached below the primary infusion to regulate the mini bag.

Medications should be drawn up in a designated clean medication preparation area that is not adjacent to potential sources of contamination, including sinks or other water sources. Water can splash or spread as droplets more than a meter from a sink. In addition, any item that could have come in contact with blood or body fluids, such as soiled equipment used in a procedure, should not be in the medication preparation area.

TPEs, however, are not easy to bond to other substrates, such as polycarbonate or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene connectors, which are widely used in standard IV tubing sets. Pushing the limits of performance: the trend in medical design is toward smaller and better, requiring more specialized extrusion materials and equipment.
