    Phthalate and alternative plasticizers in indwelling medical

    To increase flexibility and softness, phthalates, and in particular di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), have been historically used as plasticizers (or softeners) for plastic indwelling medical devices . They are primarily used to soften devices used in infusion and transfusion, nutrition, and haemodialysis (i.e., infusion or transfusion sets

    Phthalate and alternative plasticizers in indwelling medical

    We have analyzed a wide range of medical devices (n = 97) daily used in the PICUs of two academic hospitals in Belgium and the Netherlands. Identified compounds varied between the samples. Most of the indwelling medical devices and essential accessories were found to actively leach phthalates and alternative plasticizers.

    HMW ortho-phthalates represent 70% of the plasticizers market, whereas LMW ortho-phthalates comprise about 5% [3]. HMW ortho-phthalates are not yet determined to be endocrine disrupting or carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic to reproduction, however, based on studies of rats that show detrimental liver effects, there is reason to be concerned, and there are restrictions on the use of DINP and

    Nontoxic Alternatives to Phthalate Plasticizers for PVC

    Phthalates are synthetic chemicals added to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) to make flexible plastics. Due to health concerns, phthalates have been banned from children's products in the United States and Europe, but they are still used in a wide range of consumer products, including food wrap, medical devices, automotive parts, and building materials., chemicals that interfere with the body's

    Phthalates: Toxic Chemicals in Vinyl Plastic | Ecology Center

    Phthalate plasticizers are not chemically bound to vinyl, they can leach, migrate or evaporate into indoor air and concentrate in household dust. Building materials such as vinyl flooring and other consumer products containing phthalates can result in human exposure through direct contact and use, indirectly through leaching into other products
