Reply To: CSTD set preservation and tubing changes
We utilize the OnGuard. When we went live with this as our pediatric system (includes 2 hospitals), we said that if chemotherapy will be given within the next 24 hours and there are continuous fluids running, the tubing can remain for up to the 96 hours (as we have with other tubing). If chemo will not be given within 24 hours or if it is an intermittent line, it is taken down.

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!
