Step 1: Select Transfer Method
Select the source and size. If you are using a compounder, select Sterile Water for Injection and the bag or bottle size you normally use. If you select any other method of bulk transfer, you may select Normal Saline or Sterile Water for Injection, and indicate any bag or bottle size which is 50mL or greater.
Option 3: Select Final Container for TPM Simulation
This bag or bottle will be the final container for your simulated TPN. If you use an automated compounder, you must use a compounder bag. If you use both bags and bottles in your practice, select Bag for this option, select Yes for Option 4, and select the bottle in option 6. This allows you to incorporate both types of final container into your verification exercise.
Option 4: Only applicable if a you did NOT select a transfer set in Option 1, and you wish to incorporate the use of a transfer set into your verification.)
Choose Yes if:
- connecting tubing of any kind and/or using transfer sets commonly in your practice, but you are using a compounder
- use a bag in Option 1 and wish to incorporate the use of a bottle, as well
