Under no circumstances should it be necessary to attach an infusion bag to a line while it is hanging from the ‘drip stand’; doing so poses an unnecessary risk to the nurse and the child if the bag is accidentally punctured. Extravasation Extravasation is an inadvertent infiltration or leakage of intravenous fluids from the vein into the perivascular or surrounding subcutaneous tissues (Holmes, 1997). A vesicant can cause local tissue destruction both within and outside the venous system. The mechanism of how the damage occurs is uncertain but it is thought that the vesicant binds irreversibly to the subcutaneous tissue resulting in pain, oedema, erythema and tissue necrosis.

Instead they rely on this continual circulating pool of asparagine produced Chemotherapy Agents by normal cells. By introducing a catalyst, the enzyme L-asparaginase, into this circulating pool of amino acids, asparagine is converted into aspartic acid and ammonia. This effectively starves the tumour cells through rapid depletion of circulating asparagine and inhibits tumour cell protein synthesis.
