Pressure Rated Non-Reflux Needleless Valve With 7" Extension Set
100 Per Box
This set has a needleless non-reflux valve with an attached 7" extension set. This set is connected to your IV catheter to prevent accidental displacement of the IV catheter if the patient moves the extremity the IV catheter is placed in.
This extension set also works to prevent back and forth movement of the catheter so bacteria has a lower chance to migrate under the skin or into the vein at the point of insertion. This helps prevent Catheter Related Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI).
It is also useful to use a needleless extension should the patient need leave the operatory to go to the bathroom or out of the chair for what ever reason. The IV set can be disconnected and re-connected easily at the needleless valve.
