Want to reduce or eliminate catheter flushes?
Braun Caresite – needle free IV access with positive flashback
A catheter flush with heparinized saline or PSS usually is recommended after disconnecting flow to an IV catheter. If not done there is a chance of a catheter clot plug developing followed by a possible thrombus into the blood vessel when the IV catheter flow starts again.
The Caresite IV connections actually are especially designed to give a positive fluid displacement to empty catheter tip of any retained fluid.

• Easy-grip barrel designed to minimize slips and touch contamination
• PVC, DEHP or natural rubber latex free
•Compatible with Luer-Slip and Luer-Lock
•Flow rate 208 mL/min
