Be Ready to Infuse Anywhere and Anytime with this compact, safe and organized SCIG Infusion Travel Kit
This summer I took my son to a baseball tournament in Nashville (Love that place!). We were away for a week, and of course I still needed to do my weekly SCIG infusion. Now, I have a lot of bags I’ve collected over the years, however none were really right for my infusion supplies. So, I went to work creating what I think is a versatile SCIG Infusion Travel Kit whether you just need to carry enough supplies to infuse during a daily outing or if you are taking a week-long getaway. I’ve gotta say I just love the way it turned out! I hope you do too!
Be sure you watch the YouTube video on putting together your SCIG Travel Infusion Kit (and subscribe to my YouTube channel so you never miss a new video!). I’ve listed all the links to the supplies (there are non-zebra options too) I used in my SCIG Infusion Travel Kit below. Once you get yours made, post a pic, show it off and be sure to share any ideas you have to improve our kits!
Step 1: Print Out the SCIG Infusion Travel Kit Checklist
Step 2: Gather the Items You Will Need for Your SCIG Infusion Travel Kit
Koru Infusion Pump & “Hands-Free” Bag
Spikes and Red Caps
Alcohol Swabs, Cotton and Bandages
Any additional infusion supplies Including Infusion Log and Pen
Step 2: Sort Your Infusion Items Into the Mesh Bags
Here’s how I sorted my infusion supplies from the smallest to the largest mesh bag:
Smallest Mesh Bag-Pre-meds
Next Size Mesh Bag-Needles, Flow Tubes, Alcohol Wipes, Bandaids
Next Size Mesh Bag-Red Cap, Spike
Largest Mesh Bag-Sterile mat, Lidocaine, Syringes, Saline, Infusion Log and Pen
*The other items I place directly into the bag as you can see in the above video.
Step 3: Pack Up Your SCIG Travel Infusion Kit
Put the smallest mesh bag containing my pre-meds into the front zipper pocket. Next, put your pump, Sharps container, roll of trash bags and medicine into the bottom of the bag. Then, put three other mesh bags into the bag and zip it up!
Step 4: Fill Out Your Luggage Tag and Attach it to the Bag
That’s it! Now you’re ready to take off (literally!!)--So go be mobile!
Stay Strong My Zebra Friend!
