Understand how Peripheral IV connectors benefit TIVA based procedures Video

Utilising the benefits of TIVA in surgical proceedures is well known. To facilitate the delivery of fluids during labour, obstetric anaesthetists from Coventry designed a triple IV peripheral connector with a central high-flow anti-reflux valve. ...

Female Speaker: The Mediplus Coventry Triple Valve Set IV peripheral connector has been developed with maximum safety in mind. Its original intended application was for a high-flow syntocinon set of the University Hospital Walsgrave in Coventry. The product is becoming very popular across the wide range of clinical use and is replacing the traditional octopus and other traditional products. Unique to Mediplus IV products are the bright red end caps say here, here and here. We use Red end caps in conjunction with guidelines issued by the Project Orcadian report which is commissioned by the Department of Health. For invasive patients due to translucent end caps used standard by other manufacturers become enlarged in the distal end of the patient breathing circuit. To date, Mediplus is the only medical manufacturer of IV sets with these highly visible red end caps. We regard this is the unique safety feature. The features and benefits of the Coventry valve are, it allows for the routine administration of drugs for a wide range of applications. For example, obstetrics syntocinon, TIVA, diabetic wards insulin therapy, ICU, CCU, HDU, trauma theaters and others. The unique J-loop prevents any kinking of the line in the theater setting, which means that it prevents possible interruption of flow and potential through bolus and an unnecessary pressure in the lungs from the syringe pumps. You know the special feature of the green bridge can be easily removed to allow dressing to be applied post-theater and for transfer to the ward if you plug the green bridge, it can be reattached. Here and here, the two high specification valves, which will prevent back flow and always connected to the syringe pumps at the distal end of the set is the secured dose pin connector to ensure perfect fit every time to all types of cannula, net lines et cetera with lower connections. You will immediately notice the compactness of the Coventry set and it fits very well to the back of the hand which dislodge or create cannula rock and cause possible phlebitis as compared the case with much heavier peripheral sets. Be aware -- to use IV3000 dressings, which affixes cannula to the back of the hand in a very secure way. The illusive thing that if the cannula and the peripheral connector are to be left in for the maximum period of time under guidelines then it's very important to use the IV3000, which greatly minimizes the risk of infection and it allows for moisture transfer to occur prevent to the buildup of the potentially harmful pathogens. The Coventry is easy to connect, the major benefit of this set -- current competitors is the gravity valve which allows up to 250 millimeters per minute to be get in. In critical situations, this can obviate the need for other cannulae to be added. But thinking many hospitals now is to always have the high-flow option available, especially in the obstetric setting.
