    Are you saying the TUBE is green but not the urine?

    I know there is a drug that turns urine green but can't remember what it is.

    Hi,
    No the urine isn't green, just the tube 18fr latex.

    Sometimes medications and anesthesia excreted through the urine can cause a chemical reaction that changes the color of the tubing... I see pink tubing a lot my unit (Surgical ICU)...
