    We use the following

    1. Alaris/BD straight set with ball valve in the drip chamber (no choice on the brand as we have Alaris/BD pumps)
    2. Spinning Spiros from ICU medical for ease of use
    3. Chemo Spike from ICU medical

    I was just wondering what type of chemotherapy tubing you use at your facility. We currently use the sphero tubing and we circle prime. Please let me know what type you are using and why. thank you so much in advanced!
