Intravenous Administration Sets, Nonabsorbing
Definition : Intravenous administration sets manufactured with low absorption plastics to avoid partial absorption of the components of the infused solution. These sets typically consist of plastic tubes made or lined with nonabsorbing plastics (e.g., polyethylene, Teflon), avoiding the direct contact of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) components with the infused solution. The set typically includes plastic tubing, a check valve, a roller clamp, a Y-site connector for secondary tubing attachment, a safety clip to avoid free flow, and Luer adapters at both ends (i.e., male, female). Nonabsorbing intravenous administration sets are used mainly in high-flow infusion pumps for administration of solution-containing products (e.g., nitroglycerin) that are absorbed by PVC materials.
