    Good morning
    The clinic I used to work in are contemplating changing their chemotherapy administration method and the coordinator is wondering if any centers utilize Equashield and circle priming?  If so would you be willing to share your protcol?

    Currently they administer chemo as a secondary infusion and it is a confusing practice for her new orientees.  We believe that circle priming and administering as a primary may be safer and result in more complete administration.

    Thank you in advance for any information that you can provide.
