Okay here it is, to all you Nurses out there who are guilty of doing this!!!!!
IV lines do have a volume, it is printed on the bag when you first open it, it's called the Priming Volume. When you are the first nurse to hang a 100cc bag of antibiotics, and it takes 10cc's to prime the line, do not put 100cc's as the VTBI!!!!!
I'm always having to go around and chance out IV lines that have sucked air in them and because of that are driving my pumps crazy!!!!!
Thanks for listening, I needed to get this out of my system. I have bit my tounge for the last 4 years, lol.
