Clinical experiences with a single use Y bagless CAPD system applying a quick disconnect clamp for external occlusion.

1 Scopus citations


The Single Use Y set is a disposable CAPD system that incorporates the use of a Quick Disconnect Clamp (QDC) for external occlusion. The system is designed using two types of twist lock connectology. The twist lock bag connector located at the distal end of the set is designed with a flange that provides a safety shelf for proper hand position during bag connection. The proximal patient connector on the Y set is a twist lock design requiring placement of povidone-iodine in the disinfectant chamber of the connector prior to patient connection. The Single Use Y is discarded after use.
