Prefilled Contrast Syringes Help Improve Patient Care and Lower Costs
Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
Vera Kimbrell, BSRT, MR R, CMRI Technologist, Duke University, Durham, NC
This webinar will review the potential risk factors for infection with contrast media (CM) dispensed from multi-dose and bulk-pack containers, and how the integration of CM provided in prefilled syringes (PFS) can significantly reduce this risk and help institutions meet regulatory compliance. The webinar will also provide information and examples of how PFS can help optimize workflow and productivity in radiology departments and Cath labs. The webinar will include cases demonstrating significant annual cost savings by way of a cost calculator. In this webinar you will learn to:
• Discuss the potential infections risks involved with the use of contrast dispensed from multi-dose and bulk-pack containers
• Review recommendations from SIPC, CMS, CDC, and the Joint Commission regarding injection safety
• Describe how contrast media dispensed in prefilled syringes can improve patient safety
• Identify ways in which contrast media dispensed in prefilled syringes can optimize workflow and throughput in radiology departments and Cath labs
• Utilize a cost calculator to demonstrate significant overall saving with the use of PFSs
