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.

Curos disinfecting caps are dispensed as individual caps or on a convenient ten-cap strip which can be hung from I.V. poles for easy access. Strips have a hanger on both ends so the strip can be cut if necessary.
