From IV tubing
to blood bags and air bags, electric cables to computers, and synthetic clothing to carpets, it's impossible to imagine a world without plastic.

[ClickPress, Mon Oct 08 2018] A new report by Persistence Market Research titled "IV Tubing
Sets and Accessories Market: Global Industry Analysis (2012--2016) and Forecast (2017 -- 2025)" tracks the growth and performance of the global IV tubing
sets and accessories market for a period of eight years from 2017 to 2025.
The Evo IQ Infusion System features a scalable platform and user-centric design that includes an advanced drug library and dose error reduction software to promote patient safety; intuitive clinical workflows to help optimize clinician efficiency; and Baxters One Set technology, which allows clinicians to easily switch between gravity and pump applications without changing sets, reducing disconnects and set changes and may help reduce opportunities for touch contamination, along with helping to reduce IV tubing
use and costs.
- Single set technology that can help yield up to 53 percent cost savings in IV tubing
sets and up to 30 percent reduction in IV tubing
The OnGuard portfolio now offers a locking syringe adaptor to help reduce the risk of disconnection of the syringe or distal end of IV tubing
. The Syringe Adaptor is equipped with a self-retracting needle mechanism, which helps protect the clinician from needlestick injuries.
Sigma Spectrum also includes features like integration with electronic health record (EHR) systemsincluding Cerner[R] and Epicto help streamline clinical workflow and improve accuracy of IV infusion documentation, built-in real-time location tracking of equipment within a facility to protect against misplacement, enhanced data analytics and use of standard IV set technology that can yield up to 53 percent cost savings in IV tubing
sets and 30 percent reduction in IV tubing
TPEs, however, are not easy to bond to other substrates, such as polycarbonate or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene connectors, which are widely used in standard IV tubing
The experiments Included variations in bathroom locations, door locations, door swing, and which hand was attached to IV tubing
with a mobile pole.
"My co-workers set up IV tubing
to run from one spot to the other under the desk at the nurses' station, then opened the clamp when people sat down, so after a minute they realized they had a wet lap, it looked like they peed themselves."--Danielle Barlow (Facebook.com, Funny Nurses, 10/4/15)
Jones also is in the process of getting FDA approval for SafeBreak, a safety device that goes in between the IV tubing
and the patient's IV site and is designed to prevent the patient from pulling out the IV catheter.
DualCap is a revolutionary infection-control technology that protects and disinfects both the needleless injection site and the end of the IV tubing
. For the first time, clinicians have a fast and simple method to keep IV luers disinfected at placement and every time the line is accessed.
