We mix our 24 hour infusions for SCT in 3 large bags of normal saline (each bag is 8 hours) and then the tubing and cap is changed daily. This seems to help.

We have had a few incidences of this with the continuous infusions of Etoposide alone and mixed with other drugs. We have further diluted and increased infusion rates with the subsequent infusions.

Are any of you having issues with line precipitation with the 23 hour bag of Etoposide? We have had some significant ones with a few patients from 1-4 days of receiving the dose. Any tips for preventing it other than more IV fluids and making sure it runs alone?
