Abstract

The invention relates to a holding strap for catheters, comprising a soft holding strap, a female Luer-Lock connector, a connection tube that transfers the received fluid from the connector to a catheter, a holding element for holding a syringe, and a pin on one end of the strap, that is inserted into openings on the other end of the strap. This strap enables the backflow of fluids to be eliminated and prevents inadvertent needle stick.

Description

 HOLDING BAND FOR CATHETERS

TECHNICAL FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The scope or technological field where the present invention is applied for practical use is catheters for medical and health purposes.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Catheters are medical devices in the form of plastic or rubber tubes, sometimes coated, that are inserted into the channels, vessels, pathways or cavities in the body to facilitate a variety of functions, such as injection or fluid extraction , the maintenance of open ducts, the use of an incision device or the delivery of an electric charge. Catheters make it possible to drain or inject fluids or to access areas of the body with surgical instruments. Most catheters are used for cardiovascular, renal, hemodynamic infusion or neurological applications.

In order for the needle to penetrate the skin, it is necessary that it be provided with a sharp point extending beyond the distal tip of the catheter tube. Sometimes, when the needle is inserted into the patient's blood vessel, the blood flows due to the high pressures with which the blood is expelled, which causes unwanted leaks or a backflow of vascular blood. On other occasions, involuntary or accidental movements of the catheter cause the catheter to leave its position generating needle punctures or that it is necessary to repeat the catheterization process, both incidents can have fatal consequences for the patient or the medical staff.

The concern about punctures is not only focused on hygiene topics because the spillage of infectious biological waste such as human blood is an alarming factor of safety and prevention of infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis.

For the prevention of such problems there are few alternatives, one of them is the typical adhesive tape that seeks to attach the catheter to the patient's body, said tape however has not been designed to provide the required security. In this way, technologies such as US 5,497,768 have been developed where a breathing catheter with sealing clamp surrounding the catheter tube is described and can be connected through a separate tube with a source of compressed air with a substantially constant pressure. This tube adapts to a shut-off valve that is controlled by the pressure of the breathing air and adapted to prevent the air in the clamp from allowing a tight seal to escape when this pressure exceeds the pressure at the source of compressed air. The position of this valve avoids the disadvantageous effects of pressure drops in the catheter tube, which can occur when the valve is placed at the injection end of the catheter tube, such as in the case of a known breathing catheter. .

Likewise, in US Patent 20120245,528 a tunneled catheter is referred to which makes use of one or more porous sleeves to anchor the catheter in the skin of a patient, and / or to minimize the risk of infection. A catheter, comprising: an axis constructed of a polymeric material that is located near a first opening at said proximal end and a second opening at said distal end; a lumen extending between said first and second aperture; a porous element disposed around a part of said axis, wherein said porous element comprises the first polymeric material and is positioned closer to the proximal end of the axis than the distal end of the axis. In the same literature, a clamp for coupling a complementary catheter is also described in EP1603626 A1, allowing the secure placement of the clamp in different places in the catheter. In an exemplary embodiment, the clamp comprises an internal receiving location to receive and fit over the complementary catheter projection. The doctor can select the preferred location in a cuff catheter, either before or during surgery. The different devices described above address particular problems of the different catheters according to the application being sought. The new device described in the present invention can operate with all types of catheters but is particularly useful in intravenous applications. The invention described herein simultaneously solves the problem of accidental needle sticks and the unwanted retro flow of fluids.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION The characteristic details of the catheter fastening band of the present invention are clearly shown in the following description, figures and examples, which are merely one of the preferred embodiments of the embodiment of the present invention, Therefore, they should not be considered as a limitation.

Brief description of the figure:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the elements that constitute the body of the fastening band of the present invention. Figure 2 is a detailed perspective view of the present invention, in which the clamping pin is appreciated.

Examples Example 1. Preferred mode for the realization of the catheter fastening band of the present invention.

In relation to the aforementioned figure, the clamping band of the present invention comprises as main components: at least one clamping pin (1), a soft clamping band (2) preferably with Shore hardness between 20 and 40, a catheter (3), female Luer-Lock connector (4) for receiving any external fluid that has a male Luer connector, a connection tube (5) that transfers the fluid from the Luer-Lock connector to the catheter, a fastener body (6) that aligns the body of a syringe, and pin holder holes (7).

In a first step a syringe with hypodermic needle is inserted through the holding body (6) and finally the needle comes out from inside the catheter (3). The needle is inserted into a vein, thus guiding the passage of the catheter tube (3) into the vein. The needle is thus removed. Then, the patient's arm or leg is surrounded with the ends of the band (2) and the pin (1) is inserted into one of the holes (7), selected to establish a slightly firm hold on the patient's skin.

Claims

1. A catheter clamping band characterized in that it comprises: a clamping pin, a soft clamping band preferably with Shore hardness between 20 and 40, a catheter, female Luer-Lock connector for receiving any external fluid that has a male type connector Luer, a connecting tube that transfers the fluid from the Luer-Lock connector to the catheter, a fastener body that aligns the body of a syringe, and pinholes.
2. The fastening band of claim 1, wherein one arm or end of said band has adhesive material to be attached to the other arm or end of the band.
3. The fastener band of claim 2, wherein the adhesive material is covered by a waxed sheet to protect the adhesive before use.
