Accidental catheter dislodgement of IV catheters is an ongoing problem — even when catheter stabilization devices are used. The Orchid Safety Release Valve (SRV) is designed to prevent dislodgement.
Orchid SRV attaches to the luer between the extension set and IV administration set. When a sudden force is applied to the line, the valve breaks away and seals off both sides of the line. To restart the flow of fluids, simply attach a new, sterile Orchid SRV to the line.
Unscheduled catheter restart cost around $30 on average. Most hospital patients receive IVs, so dislodgement restarts and costs can add up quickly. Restarts are also uncomfortable for patients.*
*Linear Health Sciences is currently pursuing FDA clearance for the device.
The average IV restart can cost around $30.
Save the cost by saving the line — with the Orchid SRV.
