Regulating agencies have issued warnings about the potential dangers of constructing IV sets and their accessories out of plastics containing di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
They assessed the women's exposure to four phthalates--DnBP, DiBP, di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
, and diethyl phthalate--in the third trimester of pregnancy by measuring levels of the chemicals' metabolites in urine.
Bisphenol A (BPA) and di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
(DEHP) are two environmental endocrine disruptors (EDs) which despite being non-persistent chemicals - are regularly detected in the environment, in food and, as a consequence, in humans.
And third, women with moderately high levels of the chemicals mono-n-butyl phthalate and di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
had approximately a 70% increased risk of diabetes.
The most common of these phthalates used is di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
or DEHP (Environmental Working Group, 2007-2012).
PX 138 di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
(DOP) for g-p PVC.
As part of its commitment to best quality, Atrium is pleased to announce the availability of its di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
(DEHP) free thoracic catheters.
Consider the environmentally ubiquitous plastic-softening agent, di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned healthcare providers to protect vulnerable patients from exposure to di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
(or DEHP), a plasticizer that leaches from PVC medical devices.
RESULTS: The range of detection frequency of individual phthalates varied from 6% for dicyclohexyl phthalate (DCHP) to 74% for di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
If more-comprehensive studies support the new finding, the chemical, di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
(DEHP), maybe deemed harmless to newborns.
DEHP, or di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
, is used to make vinyl plastic products soft and flexible.
