Description

Description

Despite its diminutive size, the MicroClave® Neutral Displacement Connector can be one of your most powerful allies in the fight against catheter-related bloodstream infections. Neutral displacement and saline flush help promote better clinical outcomes.

MicroClave is a neutral displacement connector. This means that there is virtually no reflux of blood into the catheter lumen either when you connect or disconnect an administration device. Neutral displacement allows the healthcare provider to use one standard protocol throughout the hospital for clamping central and peripheral catheters. There is virtually no learning curve or special design needs of the MicroClave, which allow it to integrate easily into a healthcare system no matter how large.

MicroClave utilizes the existing silicone seal technology, which provides the superior sealing mechanism important to protect the IV system from microbiological contamination. Although the current Clave had the lowest deadspace of any needle-free connector at 0.06cc, this feature was improved upon in the MicroClave to a 0.04cc as precise fluid delivery volumes are paramount in children. However, the most significant improvement to the MicroClave for pediatrics is the streamlined design while still providing the popular recess for secure gripping with the fingers. The overall weight is 0.85g less or 32%! The width is 0.1" smaller and the height is marginally taller to accommodate the special designed clear luer lock.

Benefits and Features

  • Microbial Barrier: A dedicated internal fluid path makes the Clave Technology the only needle-free system proven to reduce catheter colonization in a randomized clinical trial (Bouza, 2003). Clave has a proven track record for assisting in the fight against CRBSI (Maragakis, 2006).
  • Catheter Patency: Neutral displacement virtually eliminates blood reflux into the catheter lumen upon disconnection of an administration device. No blood reflux is what makes the use of a saline flush possible.
  • Protocol Patency: The MicroClave Neutral Displacement Connector supports many styles of clinical practice, eliminating the educational burden and risk of error due to variations in technique.
