Are you able to shed light to this issue we are having regarding occlusion limits and PN filters? We are wondering if INS has guidelines as far as safe occlusion limit that we can set for infusion pumps. BBraun pump for example has occlusion settings that has a wide range to allow different occlusion limits for different IV medications or solutions. We were told by the manufacturer that they do not have any specific recommended occlusion limit for PN or other IV solutions. According to them it is safe to adjust the pressure to 200 or even higher for PN as long as it is infusing via a central line and as long as there are no signs of infiltration or actual occlusion. Hence, is it ok or safe to set a 500 pressure limit when using a 0.22 micron filter?
Thank you so much!
