A question for the forum.
We(perfusionists) add potassium to our plegisol. Some of us make up the bags with the additive and store it in a refrigerator. Is there a time limit regarding how long they can be stored before use?

Our OR manager has consulted the pharmacy and they say 24hrs is the maximum and that now is the the new rule.

At a previous job the pharmacy made up the cardioplegia (in batches of 30 or more)and it was stored in a fridge for more than 24 hrs.

How does one determine when a rule is science based or just 'the way we do it here?'
