    Multiple IV Infusion Safety

    The primary purpose of these eLearning modules is to help nurses improve the safety of multiple IV infusions. In particular, the modules focus on addressing known education gaps associated with setting up and managing secondary IV infusions and shared infusion volume (i.e., the common volume shared by 2 or more infusates). They are intended for nurses, nursing students and educators working in clinical settings such as medical/surgical, paediatric and critical care units.

    These modules were developed by HumanEra (University Health Network) in collaboration with ISMP Canada, funded by Health Quality Ontario and hosted by the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario.

    Module 1: Secondary IV Infusions

    Module 1: Secondary IV Infusions

    Most of the content in Module 1 is focused on secondary IV infusions administered using gravity-dependent large volume infusion pumps (i.e., pumps that cannot independently control fluid flow from secondary and primary bags). This module covers:

    • Common errors related to the physical set up of secondary infusions
    • The importance of checking your set up above the pump
    • Hydrostatic pressure principles in relation to the set up of secondary infusions
    • The importance of the back-check valve in preventing backflow
    • How secondary flow rates may affect the set up requirements of secondary infusions


    Module 2: Secondary Infusion Shared Infusion Volume

    Module 2: Secondary Infusion Shared Infusion Volume

    Most of the content in Module 2 is focused on secondary IV infusions administered using gravity-dependent large volume infusion pumps (i.e., pumps that cannot independently control fluid flow from secondary and primary bags). This module covers:

    • Hazards related to secondary and primary infusions sharing the IV tubing below the pump
    • The definition of shared infusion volume
    • Shared infusion volume considerations at the start of a secondary infusion
    • Shared infusion volume considerations at the end of a secondary infusion
    • Shared infusion volume considerations in relation to the secondary infusion mode
    • Shared volume considerations in relation to prematurely stopping a secondary infusion


    >Module 3: Residual Medications

    Module 3: Residual Medications

    This module covers:

    • Common hazards associated with medications remaining in IV tubing and components
    • The definition of shared infusion volume
    • Shared infusion volume considerations after the administration of an IV medication syringe push dose
    • Shared infusion volume considerations in relation to changing IV bags with different medication concentrations
    • Shared volume considerations in relation to central venous pressure monitoring and IV medication administration


    
Module 4: Multiple Continuous IV Infusions

    Module 4: Multiple Continuous IV Infusions

    Module 4 is most applicable to Critical Care Nurses. This module covers:

    • Shared infusion volume considerations when a change in rate is made to a connected infusion
    • Tactics to minimize shared infusion volume when multiple continuous IV infusions must be connected
    • Grouping infusions to minimize the impact of shared infusion volume on the patient
    • Shared infusion volume considerations when completing a tubing change
