POWER INJECTIONS WITH SMALL IVs:

  • If the exam is with pediatric sedation, you need to let the pediatric sedation team know what size IV you need prior to them getting the patient prepped.
  • It is ok to use small IVs if that is appropriate for patient size. Hand inject during perfusion scanning instead of using the power injector, and make a note/screenshot for the rads.
