    Frequency of changing IV tubing

    Hey all, Current evidence for changing peripheral IV site frequency is: change site when clinically indicated. What about IV tubing changing, is there any clear evidence to change IV set along with prick change (when clinically indicated). If the recommendation to change IV set is every 96 hours and IV site when clinically indicated; then what about practicality of changing IV set and keeping IV prick? is consider safe to open the system? what are the alternatives?

    Medications by enteral tube challenges

    Hello, Medications by enteral tube!.. The EB application of this practice is challenging. Nurses in our country perceive it as time wasting and unpractical. Any methods to improve the application of this practice? Thank you

    Issue in tracheal suction

    We are thinking of changing this practice in our hospital, because suction filter lowers negative pressure, which results in very low suction power. In our hospital we put container, does it replace the need of using the suction filters.
