Catheter Connections, Inc. has received an approval from the U. S. Food and Drug Administration for its 510(k) clearance to market its DualCap product. Catheter Connections is a manufacturer of innovative vascular access and infection control products.
The DualCap device of Company is the only product, which is able to nest two disinfecting caps together. Initially this was ignored as a course of microbial colonization; the Company has developed the first ever disinfecting cap for the male luer.
“We believe that the ability to safely disinfect and protect exposed IV connectors is significant for the medical community”, said says Vicki Farrar, Chief Executive Officer of Catheter Connections.
He said that these days there are plenty of cost effective and simple technologies, which provide healthcare facilities with an important tool in order to fight against the life-threatening infections.
The cases of CRBSIs contraction happen when microbes enter the blood stream in one of the two ways. The most common route for this is known as intraluminal contamination and the other and rare one is from the skin, at the catheter insertion site.
To fight the intraluminal contamination, nurses swab the NIS with isopropyl alcohol; however, they are instructed to do nothing to disinfect the male leur.
