Transcript of "Comparison of glass and plastic intravenous fluid bottles in hospitals"

  1. 1. Presented by Ms Harsha Guide:Dr DEEPAK AGRAWAL
  2. 2.  INTRAVENOUS (IV) fluids plays a major role in trauma setting as majority of patients are nil per orally.  IV fluids are used multiple purposes in an ICU setting. In Neurotrauma ICU.
  3. 3.  we are provided with both glass and plastic iv bottles and as nurses we are free to choose from this. IV fluids are available in plastic and glass bottle and just the type of container may cause dramatic difference in prices with no significant additional benefits.
  4. 4.  In This retrospective study carried out over 3 months in Neurosurgery ICU, the amount of IV fluids indented (consumed) was calculated from the store register. Type of IV fluid, type of contained (Glass or plastic), purchase price and utility was entered into a database. Data was analysed using standard statistical methods

  7. 7.  . The cost using combination of plastic & glass bottles is Rs 137228.8/ month. If only glass bottles are used, the cost can be reduced by almost 50% to Rs 69974/ month. In terms of usability, there is no significant advantage in parenteral therapy based on container. For suctioning NS glass bottles were found to be better than plastic bottles as they are easy to handle
  8. 8.  The responsibility of cost effective use of hospital supplies needs to be shouldered by everyone working in a health unit. Use of glass bottles can result in significant cost savings without any degradation in benefits. Glass is also environment friendly and recyclable and should be used in all high use areas
