Accidental dislodgement of IV catheters is an ongoing problem even when catheter stabilization devices are in use. The Orchid Safety Release Valve (SRV) prevents dislodgement.

Orchid SRV attaches to the luer between the extension set and IV administration set. When applied with sudden force to the line, the valve breaks away and seals off both sides of the line. To restart the flow of fluids, attach a new, sterile Orchid SRV to the line.

Unscheduled catheter restart costs 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.

Orchid SRV could provide advantages for patients, vascular access specialists, and hospitals. These potential advantages include:

For patients

  • Fewer IV restarts including painful needlesticks.

  • Reduced potential for invasive treatment such as central lines due to loss of peripheral IV integrity.

Orchid Safety Release Valve

For nurses

  • Greater efficiency by avoiding dislodgements and unscheduled IV restarts.

  • Less exposure to sharp injuries and potentially infected blood.

For hospitals

  • Reduced potential for infiltrations, phlebitis and healthcare-acquired infections.

  • Cost savings due to more efficient use of nursing time and less need to replace entire IV setups because of accidental dislodgements.

  • Greater patient satisfaction.
