venting

Etymology: Fr, vent, breath
(in IV therapy) a method for allowing air to enter the vacuum of the IV bottle and displace the IV solution as it flows out. Glass IV bottles are usually equipped with a venting tube attached to the primary IV tubing or to a vent port incorporated with the bottle stopper. Venting is not required with a plastic IV bag because the bag collapses as the fluid runs out. The air vent attached to primary IV tubing is removable to allow the injection of medication.
