IV Manifolds for Anesthesia

Hi, I'm new to this forum.

I'm an editor at Outpatient Surgery Magazine. I'm working on an article about IV manifolds for anesthesia delivery for our March issue. I'm looking for someone who knows and uses these products to author an article that would talk about how they work, how they have changed over the years, and what's new and seems to be working well now. If you're interested, or would just like to share your thoughts on these things, please let contact me or reply to this post.

Thanks for any help.

Sincerely,

Kent Steinriede

Manifolds contains stopcocks

Manifolds contains stopcocks and those should **only** be used by anesthesia and then removed before they go to the nursing unit. They pose an increased risk of catheter-related bloodstream infection because they is great problem with maintaining then in a capped and closed position. So your article should focus on these risk and discourage their use outside of anesthesia. Lynn
