The open hub of a traditional stopcock is often a portal for bacterial entry. Contaminated stopcocks are associated with an increase in nosocomial infections and mortality rates.2 In less than 24 hours, 63% of stopcocks become infected. The port of the Clave Stopcock automatically closes with removal of the male luer without having to use caps to avoid leakage or contamination. This closed system helps reduce rates of microbial colonization in catheter hubs.
