Is the insertion of a needle or cannula into a vein based on a doctors written order The needle is attached to a sterile tubing and fluid container to provide fluids and medications

Objective of this training

Serve as a guide (safety & quality) Apply principles of IVT Know the ethico-legal side

Why in-house training?

We are NOT ANSAP accredited We are doing this training to
Re-fresh what you have learned in school To augment your present knowledge To reinforce your present skill To lower risk and elevate quality of our patient care

When do we start IVT

Maintain hydration Correct dehydration Provide parenteral nutrition Administration of drug Transfusion of blood/component

Contraindications to peripheral IVT

Highly irritating drugs
Concentrated NaCl KCl (Cardiac Arrest)

IV burn

Before starting IVT

Doctors order
Patients name Type of solution, amount Flow rate Name of drug, dose, frequency Drug-Incorporated? Pushed? Procedures that will be done ie for VP shunting? Avoid head!

Before starting IVT

Assess Patient
Status of the patient, stroke patient? Diagnosis, stable? Shock? Age, very old and very young Dominant arm-left handed? Condition of the skin Size of the cannula Duration of therapy

Before Starting IVT

Check what you will use
Check for expiration date Check for breaks in packaging Insects, dust, sediments Anything that spells unclean Check label against MDs written order Make a label for any additive, date, time, dose, amount Check function of infusion pump if any

10 Golden Rules right drug right patient right dose right route right education right time right documentation right evaluation- drug-drug interaction right assessment-patient history, allergy right to refuse

Initiation of IVT
Starts with the doctors order

Choice of Cannula

Would depend on the purpose of infusion-fast hydration? type of infusion-BT? size and condition of vein-babies duration of treatment-prolonged condition of patient- in shock?

Selection of Site
Patients condition stroke avoid the weak side Patients age babies scalp Size and condition of the vein- avoid lower extremities among bed ridden patients (DVT-pulmonary embolism)

Anchoring of Cannula & Tubing

Allow normal blood flow Prevent movement of cannula Transparent for easy monitoring of cannula

When to remove the cannula

Cannula should be changed after 4872 hours or earlier as needed

Administration of Drugs, Blood, Chemotx, TPN

Explain! Before giving! Informed consent Possible side effects Indication and benefits

Check the IV Solution

Inspect IV FLUIDS check for sediment, turbidity, discoloration, leaks, cracks, damaged caps, expiration date

Correct Documentation
Legally correct- indicate the size, type, length of the cannula; NOD who inserted, Date andTime inserted Label the IV FLUID- type of fluid, medication added, use of pump, duration of therapy, NODs signature Chart-location and condition of the site, complications and NODs intervention, education, signature

Infection Control
Infection at the site is usually caused by break in aseptic technique Wash hands before handling any equipment and before starting IVT Use 70% Alcohol to clean the skin Cut hair, DONT shave Dont re-use cannula!

Infiltration Thrombophlebitis Overload Air-embolism Catheter embolism Systemic infection Allergy

Problems during the Procedure

Fluctuating Rate Runaway IV Sluggish IV Loose connection Blood back up Obstruction Clogged Filter Break in asepsis Leaks

Staff Risks
Exposure to infectious organism Needlestick injury Chemical Exposure
