NON-DEHP IV SET PROTECT PATIENTS FROM TOXIC CHEMICALS

  On July 12, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Public Health Notification on phthalates in medical devices. This included di-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), a chemical softener used in medical products made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) such as IV bags, blood bags and tubing. DEHP can "leach" out of PVC into liquids such as intravenous fluids, especially in the presence of chemotherapy drugs.


If you are writing about this important topic, please consider information on safe, "non-DEHP" alternatives such as Gravity IV set for BQ Plus Medical.


BQ Plus Medical, Inc. has designed a line of Gravity IV sets which are non-DEHP throughout the entire IV fluid path, including tubing and the drip chamber. Used by health professionals for the administration of intravenous solutions to patients, BQ Plus Medical Gravity IV sets address the growing concern of DEHP, a known carcinogen, leaching from the drip chamber as well as the IV tubing itself. Leaching is most common with the infusion of two key cancer drugs, Taxol and Taxatere.


DEHP (di-ethylhexyl phthalate) is a plasticizer adding flexibility to PVC plastic which is frequently used in medical products such as IV bags, blood bags and tubing. The issue of non-DEHP plasticizer has become critical in the administration of IV solutions, particularly in the case of chemotherapy treatment where the drug can leach plasticizer from the fluid path and infuse it to the patient.


BQ Plus Medical is concerned about the potential health risk posed by DEHP in PVC products, specifically in the treatment of patients with cancer, said Ronia, president of BQ Plus Medical. As a result, we have eliminated the use of DEHP in the tubing and, just as important, in the drip chamber of our IV sets, establishing a non-DEHP fluid path.
