IV tubing solution helps protect healthcare professionals


A major U.S. medical technology company was faced with an unprecedented demand for tubing for intravenous (IV) infusion pumps due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Traditionally, six feet of tubing is sufficient, however, due to the highly contagious nature of COVID-19, hospitals around the country were removing IV pumps from the patient’s bedside and placing them just outside the hospital room door.
