ReLink®- a breakaway connector for IV lines

The problem with Intravenous (IV) therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy is the most common invasive procedure in modern healthcare, with fluids delivered directly into the vein through tubing connected to a catheter device. Of the 3.8 billion IV tubes used each year(1), research shows that ~10% of tubes are forcefully ripped from the vein during the infusion(2). This IV dislodgement can result in injury to the patient, loss of fluid resources, exposure of hazardous drugs and increased risk of infection. It also creates additional work for clinicians, with up to 18-44 mins of additional time required to clean and reinstate the infusion(3).

Infusion stability with ReLink®

ReLink® is a patented breakaway connector, designed and engineered to increase safety and reduce harm caused by accidental dislodgement incidents.

Its unique design features double-sided, self-sealable ports, with weak link activation to protect the catheter placement site and loss of fluid resources. The pull force required to separate the tube from the catheter has been optimised through rigorous testing to ensure the catheter dwelling site remains protected.

After separation, both ReLink® connector parts can be simply swabbed and reconnected for rapid reinstatement of therapy, providing unrivalled efficiency for nursing staff in every environment.

ReLink® is specially engineered to enhance infusion stability by keeping connections of IV catheters to IV lines, with a controlled break away and predictable results.
