Automatic IV Shut Off Valve

imageThe invention provides an IV spike with drip chamber that incorporates an automatic shut off mechanism that prevents air from entering the IV tube when the container is empty which, in turn, prevents air from entering the patient’s vein. The IV spike also includes an air vent which allows the air in the drip chamber to vent out directly. After the injection is stopped, nurses can take off the spike and insert it into a new medicinal fluid container without removing the catheter from the patient.
