A 2-way Extension Tube is a medical device used in healthcare settings to provide an additional length of tubing for connecting various components of intravenous (IV) systems. These extension tubes facilitate the administration of medications, fluids, or blood products to patients, allowing healthcare providers to make multiple connections or access points along the IV line.
Key features of a 2-way Extension Tube include:
Dual Ports: A 2-way extension tube typically features two ports or connectors, allowing healthcare professionals to connect additional IV devices, such as syringes or infusion sets.
Sterile: Extension tubes are designed to be sterile, ensuring patient safety and infection control.
Length and Flexibility: The extension tube provides additional length and flexibility to the IV line, making it easier to position and adjust connections as needed.
Luer Lock or Luer Slip Connections: These extension tubes often have Luer lock or Luer slip connections for secure attachment to other IV components.
2-way Extension Tubes are valuable tools in IV therapy, providing flexibility and convenience for healthcare providers as they administer treatments and medications to patients. They help streamline the process of managing IV lines and ensure the safe and sterile delivery of fluids and medications.
