Abstract

See full text

A device having a plurality of individual passages therethrough is removably attachable to appropriate supporting structure of a sickbed, adjacent equipments, or walls of the room. Each passage is adapted to nondeformably accept and retain a flexible tubing length of an individual intravenous medication administration line running from an associated medication supply reservoir to a patient. In one embodiment, each line may be independently placed into the device or independently removed therefrom through opening a covering surface to expose said passages. This cover may be a separate piece attached by way of hinges or may be a flap closable by way of a living hinge. The cover is provided with spaces onto which the content or nature of an associated intravenous administration line may be identified by erasably writing thereon. In another embodiment, a surface suitable for erasably marking is provided between the passages, obviating the need for a cover.
