Triangle hospitals cope with shortage of IV fluids

"I see it as a crisis". As Puerto Rico's power grid is restored, Baxter International factories, which make the nutrient solutions and saline bags, was reconnected before Christmas. But intermittent power outages are still slowing Baxter's efforts to get back to full production.

Mercy Health, which operates St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital, St. Elizabeth Boardman Hospital and St. Joseph Warren Hospital, said it has shortages in small-volume IV solutions for normal saline and dextrose, select types of large volume IV solutions, parenteral nutrition solution products, some types of irrigation solutions and injectable pain medications.

Duke University Hospital says every month, it's only getting half the fluids it used to before the hurricane.

It's no secret flu season is in full-swing in the USA and for Wisconsin, experts said we're right on track with the rest of the country.

Pasko and other hospital officials said they worry that changes in procedures and products could lead to errors. Under the project, the team is reportedly planning to install massive generators of approximately 1850-kilowatt capacity, to electrify huge infrastructures like hospitals and big box stores.

Several noted a cascade effect, with new shortages created as hospitals all try the same workarounds.

With the help of crewmembers across JetBlue´s 101-city network, including those in Puerto Rico, as well as partners such as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló, and the Puerto Rico Tourism company, the airline has spent the past 100 days implementing its plan.

Radon test kits available
Confidential results are available online a few days later, or they can be mailed to the homeowner within approximately two weeks. After leaving the opened kit in the room for the recommended amount of monitoring time, send it to the laboratory for analysis.

The worst part of the shortage deals with small saline bags.

Clinicians often use saline to dilute intravenous drugs prior to administering them to patients.

Deliveries of those have been most unpredictable, said David Chen, a pharmacy director with Promedica, which operates 13 hospitals in OH and MI.

You normally get it during a hospital visit. It also gave Baxter permission to temporarily import sterile fluids from six overseas factories.

"This is a serious situation and right now we are at the limits of our conservation and adaptation strategy", said Dr. Paul Biddinger, director of the Center for Disaster Medicine and vice chairman for emergency preparedness at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

The Chief Medical Officer for Covenant Health, which oversees Knoxville's Fort Sanders Regional Hospital, said their hospitals are working together to address the shortages of IV solution and IV nutrition bags.
