Key areas where used

Method of use

The roller clamp is moved into its closed position and the blood or blood product container is prepared for use. If the container is rigid, an air inlet set (see air inlet datacard) should be utilised. Using an aseptic technique, the sheath is removed from the spike and inserted into the appropriate port of the container. The container is then suspended and depending on the manufacturers instructions, the double chambers are filled accordingly and the line is primed. The luer lock connector is secured to an IV cannula. Flow is regulated using the roller clamp.

Manufacturers recommend a maximum usage time of 24 hours or use in accordance with hospital policy
