Lopez Enternal Valve Feeding Tube Adapter Overview
Lopez Enteral Valve features clinically-proven stopcock technology. The Lopez Valve for feeding tubes is manufactured by ICU Medical to maintain a closed system throughout Enteral Feeding, drug administration, and suctioning procedures. The Lopez Value not only saves time by eliminating the use of NG tube plugs and suction line connectors, but also helps keep healthcare workers safe from accidental exposure to infectious bodily fluids. Traditional methods of nasogastric therapies require cumbersome manipulation of suction lines, NG tube plugs, and wasted time before resuming suction. These traditional methods of NG therapies result in open systems that can expose healthcare workers to bodily fluids which may carry bloodborne pathogens. The Lopez Valve utilizes stopcock technology to allow for the administration of medication with an NG syringe without having to disconnect a suction or feeding line. Not only does the Lopez Valve Adapter reduce the cumbersome process of suctioning NG drainage, but it also increases healthcare worker safety by limiting potential exposure to bloodborne pathogens. The Lopez Value Adapter facilitates continuous gastric irrigation, permits the administration of medications via feeding tubes, and increases absorption of those medications by avoiding medication mixture with enteral solution.
