Our institution is developing policy on administration of chemotherapy. I wanted to get input on how your hospitals administer IV push chemotherapy in pediatrics? In our adult hospital they utilize the side arm technique. I am struggling to find much research on this technique used in pediatrics. How do you administer IV push chemotherapy?
