IV Infiltration

KNOW THE FACTS

There are many common misconceptions surrounding the causes and
detection methods of peripheral IV infiltration and extravasation events.

  • Industry claims that infusion pumps can detect infiltrations are not accurate.
  • The main cause of infiltrations is NOT the fault of the nurse from a “bad stick”.
  • An IV can be infiltrated even if a clinician can easily flush the IV and/or get a blood return.
  • Infiltrations continue to occur with hourly assessments by the clinician.
