Abstract:     A system for the intravenous administration of single or multiple mendicants and/or nutrients to a patient through single or multiple intravenous tubings from single or multiple intravenous fluid sources where a portion of the intravenous tubing and a portion of the intravenous fluid source container are clearly marked with multiple indicia allowing for rapid visual identification and distinction between different tubes and containers, and where a section of the intravenous tubing at the patient's body and a section of the intravenous fluid container remains clear, colorless and transparent allowing for rapid and easy visual quality control and monitoring of the transfusion process. In a preferred embodiment, the multiple indicia comprise different colors, wherein each set of tubing and fluid reservoir is easily visually distinguished from the other, and also in the preferred embodiment the indicia is arranged in such a way so as to always provide a clear, colorless and transparent section of intravenous tubing immediately adjacent the injection site on the patient's body and a clear, colorless and transparent section of the container. Wherein said clear, colorless and transparent sections allowing easy visual quality control and monitoring of the transfusion.

First Claim:
Show all 14 claims
What is claimed as the invention is:     1. A system for intravenous administration of at least two different fluids through at least two different intravenous tubes to a patient, said system comprising:
  • a) first and second intravenous fluid storage containers for storing first and second volumes of intravenous fluids for transfusion into a patient's bloodstream at two spaced apart, first and second injection sites on the patient's body;
  • b) first and second lengths of intravenous tubing, connected between said first and second intravenous fluid storage containers and said first and second injection sites on said patient's body;
  • c) said first length of intravenous tubing being connected between said first intravenous fluid storage container and said first injection site, said first length of intravenous tubing thereby allowing fluid communication between said first volume of intravenous fluid and said patient's blood stream via said first injection site;
  • d) said second length of intravenous tubing being connected between said second intravenous fluid storage container and said second injection site, said second length of intravenous tubing thereby allowing fluid communication between said second volume of intravenous fluid and said patient's blood stream via said second injection site:
  • e) said first and second lengths of intravenous tubing each being subdivided into two sections each, a proximal section, and a distal section;
  • f) each said proximal section located proximal to the patient, in connection with each said injection site on said patient's body and running toward each said intravenous fluid storage container;
  • g) each said distal section located distal to the patient, in connection with each said intravenous fluid storage container and running toward said patient's body;
  • h) each said proximal section being shorter than each said distal section, each said proximal section beginning at each said injection site on said patient's body and running a short distance from each said injection site, with each said distal section running the remaining distance to each said intravenous fluid storage container;
  • i) each said proximal section being clear, colorless and transparent;
  • j) each said distal section being colored continuously and completely throughout its entirety;
  • k) said color of each said distal section being transparent in nature, such that each said distal section is transparent throughout its entirety as well as being colored continuously and completely throughout its entirety;
  • l) color of said distal tubing section of said first length of intravenous tubing being of a first tubing color; and
  • m) color of said distal tubing section of said second length of intravenous tubing being of a second tubing color.
