Reply To: CSTD set preservation and tubing changes
We use the double leg Spiros and we allow the tubing to stay up for 96hrs if it is continuously connected. If the tubing is disconnected from the patient for more than an hour, it has to be changed at 24hrs. We also use low-sorb tubing, so that went into our decision.

We’ve recently implemented closed system transfer devices at our hospital. We use a combination of Spiros on the patient end/chemo syringe and chemo clave/chemo lock on the medication bag side. We have done the set up with a set preservation concept, using the tubing for subsequent days. Is anyone else doing this-keeping chemo tubing for subsequent days/doses? Or are you still using tubing only for 1 day/dose? If you are using a saline flush bag, how long do you keep this bag for? I appreciate any information you can provide. Thank you!
