Question: What Is A Roller Clamp?

A roller-ball clamp adjusts so that you can set the tube according to your toilet’s performance needs and conserve water.

What is the roller clamp used for?

The roller clamp is what we use to control the rate at which the IV fluid infuses.

What does the roller clamp do on IV?

The clamps on the tubing control the rate of flow for the fluid. The roller clamp will adjust the flow rate from a very slow rate to a “wide open” flow rate. The drip chamber is part of any IV tubing which allows visual inspection of fluid movement.

What to do when IV fluid is not dripping?

Make sure that fluid is dripping into the drip chamber. If fluid is not dripping: Check that all clamps are open. Make sure the medicine bag is higher than your IV line.

What does it mean to spike a IV bag?

You will need to attach a tubing to your IV bag in order to infuse your solution or medication. This is called “spiking” the bag. In general, if you are infusing continuously, you should change your tubing every three days (except for TPN; that is changed every time you hang a new bag.)

What is the purpose of removing air from IV tubing?

Priming refers to placing IV fluid in IV tubing to remove all air prior to attaching the IV tube to the patient. IV tubing is primed to prevent air from entering the circulatory system.

Where does the fill tube go in the toilet tank?

The Overflow Tube empties directly into the toilet bowl. This water raises the water level in (refills) the bowl. If it weren’t for the Refill Tube there would be only a small amount of water in the bottom of the bowl. The Refill Tube must be located above the Overflow Tube.

What happens if the toilet keeps running?

Perhaps the most common reason for a running toilet is an old flapper that needs to be replaced. When flappers get old, they don’t seal the way they should, and this allows water to pass constantly from the toilet tank into the bowl. Shut off the water supply to the toilet, and then flush the toilet to drain the water.

Does the refill tube go into the overflow tube?

The refill tube goes into the overflow tube and that water fills the bowl after each flush.

Why is toilet overflow pipe leaking?

When an overflow pipe is dripping or running with water, one of the most common causes is a problem with a float valve. Float valves are found in toilet cisterns, cold water tanks and central heating feed and expansion tanks. When the water in the tank is used, its level goes down and so does the ball and arm.
