SmartChart - Dead-space Volumes for Common IV Catheters
Your staff needs to draw six times the dead space volume for coags from your ICU patients, but nobody knows the dead space volumes of the IV catheters in use.
Make the Dead-space Volume SmartChart™ available to your staff and nursing personnel.
This document takes the guesswork out of drawing from vascular-access devices in order to withdraw the proper waste volume so that samples will not be contaminated by IV fluids. It contains the dead space volumes and their 2x and 6x calculations of VADs from ten manufacturers including Bard®, Hickman®, Groshong®, Powerline® and more.
Designed for posting, SmartCharts™ are delivered to you electronically as pdf downloads. (2 page download.)
