Fenwal Blood-Pack Units
With Integral Donor Tube Using ACD or CPD and Fenwal HighFlo Needle
Instructions for Use
Use aseptic technique.
Precaution: Do not use unless solution is clear.
1. Identify Blood-Pack unit using appropriate donor identification system. Confirm that all numbered tubing of each Blood-Pack unit contains its own identical segment numbers.
2. Adjust donor scale to desired collection weight.
3. Position primary container from donor scale as far as possible below donor arm and clamp donor tubing.
4. Following blood center procedures, apply pressure to donor’s arm and disinfect site of venipuncture.
5. Remove HighFlo1 needle cover per instructions below:
a) Holding the hub and cover near the tamper-evident seal, twist cover and hub in opposite directions to break seal.
b) Remove needle cover, being careful not to drag the cover across the needle point.
Following blood center procedures, perform venipuncture, appropriately secure donor needle and/or tubing and release clamp.
6. Mix blood and anticoagulant at several intervals during collection and immediately after collection.
7. Collect the appropriate volume based on Blood-Pack unit used.
Note: The volume of anticoagulant is sufficient for the blood collection indicated on Blood-Pack unit ± 10%.
8. Apply clamp to donor tube.
9. As appropriate, release pressure on the donor’s arm, collect donor samples following established procedures and withdraw donor needle.
10. Withdrawal of needle into needle guard.
Precaution: The needle guard must be held stationary while the needle is withdrawn into it.
a) Hold sides of needle guard near the front, between the index finger and thumb. Pull the hub back smoothly until the needle is completely enclosed and securely locked into the needle guard.
b) Confirm the needle is completely enclosed and securely locked into the needle guard.
11. Strip blood from donor tubing into container, mix and allow the tubing to refill; repeat once. Seal at X marks on donor tubing to provide numbered aliquots of anticoagulated blood for typing or crossmatching.
12. Discard needle in needle guard into an appropriate biohazardous waste container following established procedures.
13. Store filled unit between 1 and 6° C.
14. Infuse blood within 21 days of collection.
Store at Controlled Room Temperature. Protect from freezing. Avoid excessive heat.
Definition of “Controlled Room Temperature”:
“A temperature maintained thermostatically that encompasses the usual and customary working environment of 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F); that results in a mean kinetic temperature calculated to be not more than 25°C; and that allows for excursions between 15°C and 30°C (59° and 86°F) that are experienced in pharmacies, hospitals, and warehouses. Provided the mean kinetic temperature remains in the allowed range, transient spikes up to 40°C are permitted as long as they do not exceed 24 hours … The mean kinetic temperature is a calculated value that may be used as an isothermal storage temperature that simulates the non isothermal effects of storage temperature variations.”
