EffectIV Product Photo 248x150

Our LifeShield™ EffectIV™ cap creates a physical barrier against external contamination and wear. The sterile, non-DEHP threaded cap is designed for single-use and natural rubber latex has not been used in the manufacture of the device. Its unique shape fits needleless injection ports and other IV access points.

The LifeShield EffectIV cap contains a sponge saturated with 70 percent isopropyl alcohol — a standard disinfectant solution — and is packaged for clinician portability and convenience.

Key Benefits:

  • Effectively disinfects a luer-activated valve injection port when left in place for 5 for 10 minutes1
  • Provides a physical barrier protecting the port from external contamination and routine wear for up to 96 hours1
  • A secured EffectIV cap provides visual confirmation that can help support hospital infection control practices
