In the field of infusion supplies, the introduction of needle-free or needle-less valves has changed the safety of patients and nursing staff receiving IV treatment. Unlike Huber needles, needleless valves are simple two-way valves that can easily control fluid flow through IV without the use of needles. Although there are many benefits to using needleless valves in a hospital or clinic environment, here are some more prominent reasons.
Easy to disinfect
In hospitals or medical institutions, especially when performing IV treatment, one of the biggest concerns is the disinfection of all materials used. Compared with traditional needles and other traditional IV treatment materials, needleless valves are easier to sterilize. For example, the surface of these valves is usually very flat and smooth, so that people can easily wipe and disinfect the entire access point to better control infection. In addition, because the device does not actually damage the patient's skin, the possibility of transmitting any potential infection is greatly reduced.
Reduce the risk of needle stick injuries
In addition to improving patient safety by reducing the risk of infection, needleless valves also play an important role in improving the safety of nursing staff. When a person provides care for patients with infectious diseases, it is not atypical for these patients to require some IV treatment. Although it seems easy to avoid, there are 6 million to 1 million needle stick injuries every year. Now, when a traditional needle is removed from a patient for permanent replacement or removal, the needle may now spread the disease if it accidentally sticks to others. By using needle-free valves, caregivers can effectively reduce the possibility of non-sterile needles getting stuck by 99%.
Reduce unnecessary risks for patients
In addition to the risk of infection, using needleless valves in your hospital environment can reduce many other risks. For example, allowing liquid to travel along a straight, non-tortuous path can greatly reduce the risk of hemolysis or sudden rupture or destruction of red blood cells. Another patient safety advantage of the needleless valve design is the use of Luer locks to control the flow of fluid. When the male luer is removed or disconnected, this usually prevents fluid backflow.
