Share |

 
   Device as it appears when taken out of the packaging.
 
 
Use the MedeGrip to grab the ampoule, and break it safely. 
 
 
 Use the MedeGrip to hold a tubing/IV connector, then twist to secure (or take apart).

MedeGrip™ is a new, small, flexible foam tool that many may find useful to help loosen tight catheter and tubing connections. It is designed to help improve your grip on the connectors. It is also designed to help protect patients and clinicians from injury when breaking glass ampoules. Designed by a vascular access nurse, MedeGrip is the first gripping device of its kind to be approved by the FDA.

 

The inventor of MedeGrip, Matthew Ostroff, tells us, “Our aim is to eliminate the use of unapproved tools such as hemostats on the patients’ vascular devices, as well as preventing revisits for home care agencies to remove a tight end cap. The end goal is compliance with the Infusion Nursing Society Guidelines to change end caps at the appropriate times to reduce catheter-related bloodstream infections.”
