Roller clamp equipped with a small roller that may be rolled counterclockwise to close off primary IV tubing or clockwise to open it. The roller clamp may also be manipulated to increase and decrease the flow of the IVsolution and is easily moved with the thumb, thus making it a one-handed convenience in the administration of IV therapy.
Back check valve
Prevents backflow and therefore it offers higher safety during parallel pressure and gravity infusions.
For example, at high secondary infusion flow rates, the pressure exerted by the pump can be enough to overcome the primary flow protection offered by the back check valve, causing simultaneous delivery of both the primary and secondary infusions at indeterminate rates. In this unique case, a reduction in secondary infusion flow rate may be required, if possible, or the primary infusion tubing may need to be clamped upstream of the secondary infusion port to obstruct primary fluid flow. The flow rate that overcomes the flow protection of a back check valve varies depending on the specific components (e.g., pump, administration set, IV bag) and the drug connected to the system.
What is a "Luer"?
The Luer taper is a standardized system of small-scale fluid fittings used for making leak-free connections between a male-taper fitting and its mating female part on medical and laboratory instruments, including hypodermic syringe tips and needles or stopcocks and needles.
Membrane filters with pore-size rating of 0.22 micron were tested for it's ability to recover Pseudomonas diminuta ATCC 19146 (P. diminuta), the organism typically used in bacterial retention testing of sterilizing-grade membrane filters.0.22 micron filters have ability to retain higher levels of bacteria.
0.22 micron filter used to sterilize fluid passed through it. The real measure of filters ability to sterilize fluid is passing the test described in ASTM F838-05, Standard Test Method for Determining Bacterial Retention of Membrane Filters Utilized for Liquid Filtration. Basically, if the filter can retain a minimum of 1 x 107 colony forming units (cfu) per cm2 of a challenge bacteria (usually B.diminuta5), then the filter is suitable to use for sterilization.
Pyrogen is any substance that causes a fever. The most commonly thought of pyrogens are bacterial endotoxins and exotoxins, although the host body (human or animal) can also produce pyrogens. The most commonly assayed for pyrogen is lipopolysaccharide, or LPS. It is a component of the bacterial wall of Gram-negative bacteria and is released upon breakdown of the cell wall or bacterial cell lysis.
Pyrogen-free products are manufactured in settings that prevent the deposition of bacteria and other agents on the products.
Patient Safety (DEHP & PVC Free)
PVC-free, DEHP-free products help protect susceptible populations: critically ill male neonates, pregnant and lactating women, pediatric patients, adolescent boys, and chemotherapy patients. Animal toxicity studies indicate that PVC and DEHP target the testes, liver and kidneys.
Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice advise to usee administration sets free of di-ethylhexyl-phthalate (DEHP) to administer lipid-based infusates, such as IVFE or TNA. DEHP is lipophilic and is extracted into the lipid solution with commonly used polyvinyl chloride administration sets and containers. DEHP is considered a toxin, and studies have demonstrated increased DEHP levels in lipid solutions, which is especially a risk with neonatal, pediatric, and long-term home care patients (42).
