UVC Line Set Up

Specialties NICU


Hi! I wanted to reach out to see if I could get some help with how other hospitals are setting up their lines and fluids with a double lumen UVC. We often will have HAL/IL via trifuse on one lumen and the other lumen we have a hummie system for closed blood draws typically with D10 with heparin or sodium acetate with  heparin. Do your doctors only use sodium acetate with heparin as a carrier fluid ? My other question is do you use the med line on the trifuse with the HAL/IL or do you put a Bi on the hummie system and have your med line with your carrier fluid ?  

Thabks so much

Specializes in NICU.

Depends on equipment you have, site depends on test needed,aPKU by heel stick on a squirming infant  is challenging.
