    Hi,
    I was just wondering, does anyone have a recommendations for safety precautions following HIPEC for nurses?  Do you follow chemo precautions and if so how long after?

    Yes, we practice our usual chemo precautions for post HIPEC patients which is 7 days for all chemotherapy drugs.  While the majority of drug is absorbed thru the lymphatic system, there is also systemic absorption.
