Infusing Blood


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there are any contraindications with transferring blood with the Medsystem III infusion pump.  I know the pump can, but is there any contraindications with the tubing.  I'm not talking respiking with primary set.  I just want to add the secondary extension set and continue. 

I've been trying to research online, but haven't found anything saying no or yes.

The Medsystem III has blood product administration sets made for use with it. I've always just used the designated blood sets or eyeballed the drip for the remainder of the infusion when doing a transfer.

I liked the blood set for the Medsystem III.  It is quite helpful when giving lots of blood.

Sorry, I am not following you 100%.  I think you are suggesting connecting a gravity blood set to the half-set (the one you connect the syringe to).  If so, where I work we do that from time to time.  No issues at all.  Just not as tidy.

All the best,
