We do not use the spray any longer in our facility for port access, haven’t done so in a number of years. The spray is not sterile, so if it is applied after the site is cleaned for PAC access you have the possibility of introducing bacteria into the insertion site. also, there is an issue with storage of the spray, it is flammable and needs to be stored properly as a flammable item.
I will admit it was incredibly convenient to use and the kids really liked it but we moved away from it a while back for the above reasons.

In your facilities do you use EMLA for numbing prior to port access or EMLA and/or Pain spray? I am currently look for research on the later.
Thanks in advance
