    Transcript

    00:01 Let’s wrap up this video series.

    00:02 I hope you enjoyed practicing these drip rates with us.

    00:05 The primary IV lines are longer and their volumes are larger than secondary lines.

    00:11 Secondary IV lines are for intermittent medications that are often called IV piggybacks or IVPB.

    00:19 The size of the IV drop is regulated by the IV tubing set being used.

    00:25 So be sure to note what the size is on the tubing set you’re using.

    00:29 Most hospitals will have more than one size of infusion tubing.

    00:33 The drop per mL is printed on each IV tubing package.

    00:37 If no pump is available, you may need to convert mL to hour to drops per minute and I know that you can do it.

    00:44 Thanks for watching our video today.
