We have experienced flow issues when using standard Hospira gravity flow sets with the Max Plus extension sets(MPX 9100, MPX9103).Â When the Male Hospira locking coller is screwed onto the Max Plus cap we have noted an intermittant lack of flow, when fluid is running to gravity.Â Â This only happens with the distal Max Plus cap, when the Y site on the extension set is used the tubing works just fine. Â I have checked with other facilities with in our system and we seem to be the only one having this issue.
Has anyone else experienced thiis???
Of note,Â When the Hospira set is connected to the Max Plus in a two step process it works fine but that has not been the practice of nursing over the last three years.
- PushÂ the male end of the Hospira tubing into the Max Plus cap
- Screw the locking coller downÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â
