    We use the same graduated cylinders with a glove over the syringe...yeah...I'm not convinced it's the best, but it's probably the cheapest.

    We use this, too. Cap over syringe, also. We don't have a time to throw out the cylinders.

    Penguin warmers and love them!

    Also will use 1L graduate container with lukewarm water and place capped syringe in, or some RNs will place capped syringe in a glove or ziploc baggie and place the waterbath. Graduates are changed weekly.
