    Blood transfusion and Normal saline bag.

    Could anyone please explain some other functions of normal saline bag used in blood transfusion?

    Thanks TriciaJ. Your previous participation at this forum would be a great bonus to the forum. Did you check the response from other members at this forum? I believe you are a great nurse. Perhaps you did some typing errors in your previous posts. It wouldn't be a concern. I believe all of members at this forum would wish you all the best.

    The original post aims to let younger members lack of experience to check the response from some members at this forum. It is not expected for some younger members to blindly follow on what some other members said at this forum, as these younger members are either lack of experience or lack of judgement in front of complex issues. The post intends to let younger members practice independence in judgement.

    The next round of discussion is as follows: Is priming the infusion line with blood a wrong practice? Any nurses with 35 years working experience are welcome to join the discussion.

    As you said, you only run blood with D5W. Are you sure that it is always correct for patients with diabetes, electrolyte imbalance, renal failure or heart failure?

    It seems TriciaJ demonstrated adequate confidence to join the discussion. It is great. I believe Triciaj has genuine clinical expertise in coincidence with 37 years working experience.

    In the nursing industry, there is a big ambiguity regarding whether priming the infusion line with blood is appropriate or not. Even some practitioners with decades of working experience still have different understandings. The post aims to improve the quality of care and promote patient safety. Either you participate in the discussion or not, it is your freedom of choice.

    Blood transfusion and IV cannula.

    Massive Transfusion Protocol could be quite different from general blood transfusion guideline. It aims to improve patient survival regardless of potential risks. However, once the risk of TRALI arises, the transfusion nurse could be quite busy at work, if the nurse has a few other patients.

    If the QT Is prolonged wouldn't the QRS Always be widened?

    Your reply "A prolonged QRS is always originating from a conduction issue. (BBB, Ventricular pacemaker, elevated K+)" is not complete. Type 1C antiarrhythmic drugs can potentially cause prolonged QRS and QT. Some patients at a cardiac ward are likely to have antiarrhythmic medications.

    According to some clinical guidelines about blood transfusion, both priming the line with blood and priming the line with normal saline are acceptable. In real practice, both priming skills are in use at many different hospitals. Let's begin the discussion with the following multiple options: 1. Priming the line with normal saline is the first choice. 2. Priming the line with blood is the first choice. 3. There is no difference between priming the line with normal saline and priming the line with blood. 4. Priming the line with blood is a wrong practice. Please choose the correct options, and discuss why you choose these options.
