an issue just rose from our haematology dept. They have decided that they will no more infuse chemo (unspecified) with the aid of a pump, if it is given through a PIV. Given through a CVAD itÂ´s OK, they say. Here at the oncology dept, we give everything with the aid of pumps, even through a PIV. My feeling is that the pump gives me extra security, sounding off if there is increased resistance. They claim that the pump will continue to infuse if extravasation occurs, but without a pump it will stop infusing if extravasation occurs, or at least extravasate less. Any views on that? Probably no available evidence, right?
