The Kendall™ neutral displacement needleless connector for infusion therapy is designed to complement best clinical practices to help reduce the risk of catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI) and reflux-induced catheter occlusions.
- The lowest measured displacement and blood reflux of market leading valves.1
- Neutral fluid displacement at both Luer connection and disconnection helps reduce reflux-related occlusions.
- Does not require clinician clamping to control valve induced reflux.2
- Flat, smooth swabable surface promotes easy and complete cleaning.
