ClearGuardŽ HD Antimicrobial Barrier Caps for Hemodialysis Catheters

The first and only device cleared for sale that kills infection causing bacteria inside a long-term hemodialysis catheter hub.

ClearGuard HD caps feature a rod that extends into the hemodialysis catheter hub. The rod and cap threads are coated with chlorhexidine, a well-known broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent.

Multiple studies with over 4,000 total hemodialysis patients in 80 centers showed ~70% reduction in central line-associated bloodstream infections vs. commonly used caps or connectors.1-2
