Indications for Use

Inadvertent contamination of intravenous infusions can have serious consequences:
  • Particulate Contamination – Arises from a variety of sources, intrinsically in infusate and equipment, and extrinsically due to manipulations. Studies have demonstrated that particles may cause phlebitis on peripheral infusion lines and may have serious systemic effects,5 damaging the lung by irritation of endothelium and by deposition in microvasculature.6
  • Entrained Air – Results from degassing of solutions, incomplete priming, or with disconnection. Entrained air is especially problematic on central lines, leading to air emboli.7  
  • Microbial Contamination – IV administration systems may become contaminated inadvertently due to manipulations.8 Some bacteria can grow rapidly in infusion fluids, increasing the infection risk.9,10
  • Associated Endotoxin – Endotoxin has serious effects on the inflammatory, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and coagulation systems.11 It is released by Gram-negative bacteria and has been shown to be able to penetrate conventional IV filters.12 Only filters that retain associated endotoxin can be safely used for more than 24 hours.13
