    I know this post was from a couple of years ago; however, what was the decision your team reached? We have just switched from Phaseal to Equashield and are trying to decide how to best track the 10 entries as well. 

    Thank you!

    Hi all,

    If you use Equashield, how are you operationalizing the 10 access limit for the male adapter?

    With USP <800> this is a huge hospital-wide question.

    Do you discard with each use? Track in some way?

    Thanks, team.
