Use Creative Strategies to Conserve IV Fluids During Shortages

Help your hospital think outside the box to further conserve large- and small-volume IV fluids during shortages.

Create alternative ways to prep and administer IV infusion meds. Many hospitals are switching to IV push. Help ensure a safe transition.

Use sterile water to dilute IV push meds when possible. Using D5W or normal saline instead of sterile water...or not diluting enough...can increase osmolarity and extravasation risk.
