Has anyone heard that pit is teratogenic and you should wear gloves when hanging it?
I was told this on orientation, but it seemed very odd to me since we give it to pregnant women all the time!
Anyway, I admit I'm lax about wearing gloves when handling IV bags.
But now I'm 8 weeks pregnant and got some postpartum pit (20 units in 1000ml) on my bare hand and it made me nervous because I remember what I heard on orientation.
Is there any truth to that?
I couldn't find any info online.
Is there a theory that it could cause birth defects?
Or maybe miscarriage in large doses? (I doubt a splash on intact skin would do it...)
Do you all wear gloves when hanging bags of pit?
