We had quite a debate about the administration of blood products the other night at work which became unusually heated. So I put the question out to all of you...How fast do you run your prbc's? What type of tubing do you use? What size of angiocath do you run it through? This subject in particular was hotly debated. Stable patient in over 3-4, unstable as fast as you can. Special blood tubing that has it's on filter and so you can run ns with it. At least a 20 is recommended but can run safely 22how fast do you run your ffp? What type of tubing do you use and through what size angiocath? Do you use a pump? Ffp can ran as fast as you want, still use blood tubing. Pump is optional, same size angio as aboveHow fast do you run your platelets? What type of tubing do you use and through what size angiocath? Do you use a pump? This subject was also hotly debated. Platelets can just be run in as fast as they will go often just by gravity. Still use blood tubingDo you feel there is any difference in cell integrity when running your (trauma-emergent) blood in using a pressure bag as opposed to using a rapid infuser/warmer? As long as the vein is good, no problemsIt will be interesting to see what some of your opinions might be!!
