What is a Heparin Cap?

Product Category:

Heparin Cap, also called an injection stopper, is a medical device used to prevent blood clots from forming in intravenous catheters by keeping the catheter open and flowing. It also helps maintain the patency of the IV catheter. This heparin cap has two male luer lock connector types: distal and octagonal distal.

This device should be used by healthcare professionals who are experienced in IV catheter insertion and maintenance. It should be replaced every 24 to 72 hours, depending on the facility's policies and the patient's condition, to prevent the risk of infection or other complications.

Product Specifications


Distal Male Luer Lock Connector is a component of a heparin cap that features an opaque yellow body and a male luer lock connector with a recessed luer taper, providing a secure connection for fluid delivery. It also has a self-sealing injection port at the proximal end and is DEHP-free and Latex-free, making it safe for medical use.

Octagonal Distal Male Luer Lock Connector is a small, male connector designed to fit into a female luer. It has a priming volume of 0.1 mL and a length of 0.75 in (1.9 cm) and is commonly used in heparin caps to allow for easy attachment of other medical devices.

How should a Heparin Cap be used?

To use a heparin cap, first disinfect the injection site with an alcohol pad and let it dry completely. Then, remove the cap from the syringe and attach the heparin cap to the end of the syringe. To administer medication, insert the syringe into the heparin cap and inject the desired amount of medication.

How often should Heparin Cap connectors be changed?

The frequency of changing heparin cap connectors may vary depending on institutional policies and individual patient needs. Generally, they are replaced during routine IV line changes, which often occur every 72 to 96 hours. If the cap becomes contaminated, damaged, or is no longer functioning correctly, it should be replaced immediately.


How does a Heparin Cap work?

A heparin cap is an auxiliary instrument used with a non-ported IV cannula. When the cap is attached to the IV cannula, it provides a safe and convenient access point for medication administration or blood sampling.

What is the difference between a distal male luer lock connector and an octagonal distal male connector?

A distal male luer lock connector is a type of connector that securely attaches to a female luer lock connector, while an octagonal distal male connector has eight sides and is designed to fit into a needleless injection port. Both types of connectors are commonly used, but the choice depends on the type of medical device it is being used with.

What are the uses of a Heparin Cap?

Heparin Cap is primarily used in patients with intravenous catheters to prevent blood clotting and maintain the patency of the catheter. It is also used during hemodialysis, in critical care units, and for other procedures that require long-term venous access.

How should the Heparin Cap be prepared before use?

Before use, the Heparin Cap should be properly primed to ensure that the heparin solution is evenly distributed throughout the catheter lumen. This involves removing any air bubbles and flushing the catheter with a saline solution. The cap should also be inspected for any signs of damage or contamination.

How should a Heparin Cap be stored and handled?

Heparin Cap should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. It should be handled with care to prevent damage to the cap or contamination of the heparin solution. It should be properly disposed of after use in accordance with medical waste regulations.
