A Manifold Stopcock is a medical device used in healthcare settings to manage the flow of fluids or medications in complex intravenous (IV) therapy or multiple access points. It features a central hub with multiple ports, each equipped with a stopcock or valve to control the flow of fluids independently.
Key features of a Manifold Stopcock:
Multiple Ports: The manifold typically has three or more ports, allowing healthcare providers to connect and control multiple IV lines, medications, or fluids from a single hub.
Individual Control: Each port is equipped with its own stopcock, enabling healthcare professionals to open, close, or adjust the flow of fluids separately. This individual control enhances the precision of IV therapy.
Luer Lock or Other Connectors: The ports are often designed with standardized fittings, such as Luer locks, to secure the manifold to various IV components.
Clear Labeling: Ports may be labeled to indicate the type of medication or fluid being administered through each line, reducing the risk of errors.
Manifold Stopcocks are critical tools in medical settings where multiple IV medications or fluids need to be administered simultaneously. They help ensure the efficient and controlled delivery of treatments while minimizing the complexity and risk associated with managing multiple access points for IV therapy.
