Reply To: Use of buretrols for chemotherapy administration
MemberDecember 18, 2021 at 7:56 amFrom the chemo spill/exposure perspective buretrols are unsafe , some can break/crack and some can overflow and leak out from the air filter/port , although the newer ones supposed to have a leak proof filter so that is less risky however spiking them into the chemo bag also comes with an increased risk for leaks , best to use a closed system with leak proof attachments and caps.

Subject: RE: Use of buretrols for chemotherapy administrationI am an older nurse, as well, and it has been years since we have used buretrols due to their increased risk for aerosolization. I still miss them for administering chemo. We have our chemo primed under a hood down in pharmacy and use a closed system to administer. We program the volume marked on the bag plus add 30 ml for a flush.

I am an old nurse and loved buretrols. We haven’t used them for years. We have our tubing primed with chemo or saline .

We currently still use buretrols on our unit to administer chemotherapy – can you tell me what your units are currently doing?
