Baxa TPN Compounder tubing set shortage

​There is a shortage of tubing sets for the Baxa EM2400 TPN compounder with no release date in sight (#173 & 174). What kind of mitigation strategies are facilities using? We plan on using each tubing set for 48 hours to preserve our supplies. This will increase the risk of infection, but I feel it is outweighed by the risk of error that would be caused by manually drawing up TPN ingredients. Thoughts??
