Idea Exchange: Keep track of body cavity fluid by using a spray bottle

VETERINARY MEDICINE

When performing a thoracentesis or abdominocentesis, it is easy to lose track of how many 60-ml syringes of fluid have been removed. To help us keep track, we squirt the body cavity fluid from our syringe directly into an empty 24-oz spray bottle. This bottle has graduated ounce and milliliter marks on it, so we can see how much fluid we have collected when the procedure is complete.
