TPN: each hospital has its own protocol on how to connect and disconnect TPN, it’s own ‘method.’ For me I have two pairs of sterile gloves, four alcohol wipes, one 10ml saline flush and one giving set (the tube that goes into the TPN bag and hooks up to my hickman line) and one dressing pack. That is for my connection, it used to take me ages to connect... or at least it felt like ages! I can do it confidently and safely in about 5-10 minutes. Disconnection is even quicker! For that, I have one 10ml saline flush, one 2ml Turolock, two alcohol wipes, one pair of sterile gloves, a green cap (for the end of my line to keep any nasty bacteria getting in) and one dressing towel. Whenever I travel or stay over at another persons house... I don’t travel ‘light’ I usually have more medical supplies than I do actual personal items like; clothes. Luckily, my partner keeps a stash of medical stuff at his place so I just have to bring my TPN and pump with me if I want to stay over. TPN used to be so daunting at the beginning when I was learning... now, almost 4 years down the road and it’s just an extra part of my routine.
