Document all procedures. TO INFUSE FLUID: 17. Spike the IV fluid bag with the Administration Set (not included) and prime the line. 18.

19. Insert the Blunt Tip Cannula into the PRN Adapter hub through the hole that the Red End Blunt Needle created. See Figure: 14. If the cannula fails to enter the PRN Adapter, make additional attempts. The cannula will only successfully enter the original hole made by the Blunt Needle. An additional hole may be made with the blunt needle, or the Blunt Needle may be used in place of the Blunt Tip Cannula as a last resort.

Figure: 14 20. Secure the IV Tubing with the LineBacker IV tubing securing device: It is best secured around a bone. If the AC (preferred) site was used, it should be secured around the wrist. Peel off the adhesive back. Lay the IV line along the patients arm and loop it around the thumb. At the level of the wrist, lay the IV line on the adhesive and fold the adhesive over on itself. Secure the Velcro strap snuggly around the wrist so that if the IV line is pulled it will not dislodge IV access. See Figure: 15, 16, 17, and 18.

21. If the IV line is pulled (accidentally, or on purpose) between the LineBacker and the access site, the saline lock should remain patent and clean. See Figure: 19 and 20. 22. Document all care provided.
