What is Luer Lock IV Set?

Introduction


The Luer lock IV set is an IV set with Luer lock connectors. Luer lock connectors are accessories designed to connect needles with the tubes. It is a connector used on the infusion set to ensure that connections between a male-taper fitting and the female mating part of a needle are leak-free. Screwing the needle onto the Luer lock connector creates a tight bond that prevents the needle from being accidentally removed. The Luer lock infusion sets we have include infusion set KY-RI-005, KY-RI-006, KY-RI-007, KY-RI-008, KY-RI-009, KY-YI-001, KY-YI-002, KY-YI-005, KY-YI-010, KY-YI-003, etc

Applications

Infusion sets are used for intravenous therapy. A needle is inserted into a vein, and the fluid is injected directly into the patient’s vein.

Intravenous therapy gives medical staff a rapid and effective method to provide fluids and medicine for emergencies such as dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, and specific drug administration. However, the kind of administration relies upon the infusion rate and type and the solution container utilized.
