Consistent use of Curos disinfecting caps on I.V. needleless connectors is associated with decreased CLABSI. Curos caps are alcohol-containing caps that twist onto ports for disinfection and protection. Each Curos cap contains 70% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) which bathes the surface of the port and disinfects it in 1 minute.
Protection that Stays Put: Curos disinfecting port protectors twist on easily and stay securely in place.
Made to Fit: Curos disinfecting port protectors fit with commonly used needleless connectors - meeting 2016 Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice published by INS.
Effective Disinfection: Curos disinfecting port protectors contain 70% isopropyl alcohol (IPA). The IPA bathes the surface of the needleless connector. Curos™ caps disinfect in 1 minute and keep ports clean for 7 days. They’re proven effective against Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida glabrata, and Candida albicans.
Colored Bright to Disinfect Right: Curos products have a distinctive green color that allows clinicians to verify and measure compliance.
Flexible, Convenient Dispensing: Curos products are available to be dispensed as individual caps or strips. Curos disinfecting cap strips are packaged to hang from an I.V. pole for easy access, greater compliance and reduced waste. Strips have a hanger on both ends so the strip can be cut if necessary.
