  • Patent number: 4414999
    Abstract: A flow regulating assembly and components are provided for a catheter system. The assembly provides a regulated flow of medical fluid with an intermittent operator-controlled large-volume flushing flow. The assembly includes a flow-occluding piston reciprocal within a housing to move from the regulated flow position to a position completely out of the path of fluid flow from the inlet to the outlet. Actuation of the piston is from the exterior of the housing, and adjustment of the regulated flow volume is also effected from the housing exterior. The assembly components may be sterilized and fitted together in a clean room without welding or gluing being necessary.
