Medical Consumables : Infusion Therapy
Infusion therapy is the delivery of drugs directly into the bloodstream via a vein, usually located in the arm or hand. Many medications used to treat neurological disorders must be delivered in this manner.
Helps reduce CRBSI when used in combination with clinical practice interventions.
Catheters provide a vital lifeline for patients. As the gatekeeper, catheter IV connectors should provide access without acting as an avenue for microbial contamination. For vital connections, evidence is confidence and the MaxPlus clear has been shown to help significantly reduce catheter complications (occlusions and CRBSIs) when used in conjunction with best practice interventions.2
Featuring a clear housing and patented Tru-Swab technology, theMaxPlus clear provides complete visualization of the fluid path-a visual reminder to completely perform clinical practices such as priming, disinfection, and flushing. This clarity, when leveraged in combination with clinical practice interventions, may help to reduce the occurrence of bloodstream infections and occlusions in patients receiving infusion therapy-ultimately leading to improved patient outcomes.
The MaxPlus needleless connector features our patented positive displacement technology, which provides a bolus of fluid to clear the catheter tip upon disconnection from the device. This clears the catheter and locks it against retrograde blood, reducing the risk of occlusions due to reflux.
The MaxPlus is referenced in the 2011 CDC guidelines as contributing to significantly reduced CRBSI rates when used with other bundled interventions.
MaxPlus clear connectors answer the needs of clinicians:
MaxPlus clear connectors, when used in conjunction with clinical practice interventions, may help support reduction in:
Prolonged catheter patency and effective disinfection provide a seven-day change-out protocol.
CareFusion’s MaxZero needleless connector, designed to improve patient safety, is an extension to a exclusive collection of needleless connectors. It has a solid, sealed surface, which acts as a barrier to bacteria and contamination and allows effective three-second disinfection with an alcohol pad. The MaxZero needleless connector has a smaller profile and prevents reflux of blood into the catheter after being disconnected. It promotes nursing best practices by reducing process steps.
Proven three-second disinfection enhances clinician workflow while helping to prevent bacteria from entering the line.
Visible fluid path improves flushing and reduces occlusions to help maintain line patency.
The secure microbial barrier helps to prevent contamination from entering the line when not in use.
The ergonomic design of the SmartSite makes it easy to use.
Carefusion SmartSite needle-free valve and other SmartSite devices provide a wide variety of benefits in IV therapy including helping prevent infection.
Free of needles, they reduce the risk of blood-borne needlestick injuries.
They feature a smooth, swabbable surface that you can disinfect at every access point. Standard with administration, gravity, secondary and extension sets, Carefusion SmartSite technology is designed to enhance safety for both you and your patients.
The SmartSite features:
A simple, needle-free Luer-locking closed male luer designed to reduce exposure to hazardous drugs.
Caregivers spend every day focused on the health of patients. You may not consider the potential risks that daily exposure to hazardous drugs can have on your physical health causing skin rashes, infertility, miscarriage, birth defects and possibly leukemia and other cancers.
Our complete system of drug reconstitution products provides safe handling of hazardous medications throughout the entire continuum of care from drug mixing to preparation, transport, delivery, and disposal. Our Texium closed male Luer and SmartSite needle-free valve products partner to form a closed system, featuring no-drip-tip technology designed for a drip-free, leak-free disconnection to help protect healthcare workers and patients alike.
Texium closed male Luer and SmartSite needle-free valve products partner together to form a closed system. It provides leak-free connections and disconnections that help reduce the risk of exposure without adding cumbersome steps to the clinical process.
