Air can enter central lines accidentally left open to air in a matter of seconds causing intractable cardiac arrest. There have been numerous case reports of deaths from this mechanism – all are avoidable.
We do not need central lines or vascular attachments that open to air. We could effectively eliminate this risk by replacing them with those that do not.
We will continue to update information on suppliers as it becomes available.
Please note we have no financial interest with any of the products discussed on this website.
