Can I trust my fluid pump?

The other night I was setting up a patient with multiple iv lines running through a 3-way adaptor, and I started wondering if a complicated set-up like this affects the actual rates of fluids delivered. Is there any information on this? Do I need to compensate when I work out fluid rates when I have multiple lines running in? Thanks!
