I have been struggling with this search/research.  My patron is has 
phrased this question a couple of ways:

Why blood can't go through a pigtail to microbore tubing?

Can blood be administered directly from  IV pump tubing, 3 way stop-cock 
tubing or "pigtail" into a angio cath? 

Smallest bore angio cath appropriate to administer through.

Any help would be appreciated.
