    Hi Melissa,

    I don’t have any insight on the Alaris short sets, but I am wondering what types of issues you are having with implementing Onguard? We are considering this system for a possible change from Spiros. Any insight is appreciated!

    Good Afternoon,

    I am looking to see what products other institutions are using for IV sets/chemo safety devices to administer chemotherapy. We had switched from Spiros with our Alaris tubing to Onguard with our Alaris tubing but have run in to some issues implementing the Onguard system in pediatrics. We are currently looking at the Alaris short sets which seem promising. Does anyone use the Alaris short set for their inpatient chemo infusions? If so, what have been your challenges? Or if you have found success with an alternative product, I welcome that information as well.

    Thank you!
