Module 4 – Shared Infusion Volume – Part Two


This is the second module in a two part series about shared infusion volume. This second module covers shared infusion volume considerations when a change in rate is made to a connected infusion. While it is most applicable to Critical Care Nurses, it may also be relevant to other nurses when multiple infusions must be connected. In particular, this module covers:

  • 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
