Blood products can be safely infused with infusion devices. Contact your manufacture and they can provide the white papers that document the safety.
They would not provide blood sets for their pumps if this was not safe. I know that when I began nursing that we would NEVER infuse blood product on a pump, but after reviewing P&P we did some research and yes, it is approved.
But alway's follow your P&P, hopefully it's based on the latest research though...
