My Favorite Bag for IV Therapy

July 21st, 2014 by Carrie, the Just Mildly Medicated gal

Every gal has a favorite bag, even us chronically sick chicks.

So why is it I was using a bag daily that I didn’t like?

When you use IV therapy regularly you become familiar with a black back pack, yes, a black back pack. Everything you need for the day fits snugly and it truly does the job of carrying around a CADD pump, lines, IV bag, saline and heparin to flush the port, and all other accessories that go along with IV therapy.

But I was done using a bag I didn’t like every single day I knew it was time to consider some new options. I looked at a few bags I already owned but none really fit what I wanted, I had no luck at all in stores. It wasn’t until I looked at the rest of my medical supplies that I figured it out. I was using cuter bags to store my medical equipment in than the one I was walking around with. I needed a 31 Bag for the job!

My weekly IV supplies organized in 31 Bags

When I contacted my 31 gal I told her what I was looking for…

* a cute bag

* not crazy big

* had to to hold daily IV supplies

* have room to hold other random things a gal needs

* it needed to close

Honestly I wasn’t sure we would fill the order, I was wrong! It was narrowed down to one bag, after a color choice and some thoughts on personalization, the perfect bag was on it’s way to my house!

As you can see I chose to put “medicated” on mine, and after using the new bag for the last two weeks I can tell you it has filled my every want in a daily bag to tote around all of this IV gear.

Here I am packing up for the day with a 1500 ml bag of saline.

It has two large compartments and a front flat pocket, so you’ll have enough room to carry everything you need. There’s even a patent pending on the innovative new design!”
