Lopez Enteral Valve by Icu Medical
The Lopez Enteral Valve is a stopcock like device, which allows the health care worker to access enteral systems without breaking open the lines. This closed system enteral valve protects the health care worker from exposure to bodily fluids that may carry blood borne pathogens such as HIV and Hepatitis C. The Lopez Valve is a three way stop intended to be used in conjunction with gastric or feeding tubes and designed to prevent accidental exposure of the healthcare worker to the patients gastric fluids or mucus membrane secretions.
Intended to be a disposable, single use product, the Lopez Valve should be handled in a similar nature as other single use enteral products. The most common change protocol for the valve in an acute care setting is weekly. In an alternate care setting, the valve may be used longer. We recommend that each facility establish and validate their own Lopez Valve replacement policies based on their specific applications. We further recommend that as part of the protocol, the user inspect the Lopez Enteral Valve prior to each use for signs of wear. If there is visible wear (black lettering worn off, leakage, cracks, etc.) the valve should be replaced. The valve may be cleaned using a mild a detergent and water when appropriate.
