Prepare a collapsible I.V. solution bag by extracting all air from the
bag. If heparinizing, add heparin prior to air removal.
If an air-free solution source is not used (i.e., air is not extracted
from the fluid source), air may be forced into the monitoring line
when solution is exhausted.
Close the clamp on the administration set and remove the
protective cap from the administration set spike. Insert the spike
carefully into the I.V. solution bag.
To prevent inadvertent puncture of the I.V. solution bag, insert the
spike carefully using a twisting motion.
