The FastBreak Breakaway Connector is a patient safety device intended to serve as a conduit between a general drainage catheter and an external fluid reservoir. The two-piece connector has a patient side that connects to the catheter tubing and a second side that connects to a drainage supply receptacle. In use, the two sides are connected, thereby allowing fluids to flow through uninterrupted. When a force is applied to the catheter or the drainage bag the connector will disconnect eliminating risk of the catheter dislodging from the patient. The connector is then able to be reconnected.
FEATURES & BENEFITS:
- Patient safety
- Prevention of bodily fluids becoming exposed or catheter being compromised
- May lessen additional services required in health care facilities
- Three force strength offerings: low, medium, and high
- Easy to reconnect
