I was just wondering what the purpose of keeping a heplock in when no IV fluid is running. Is it just so you don't have to start a new acces in case you need to run fluids?

I am in my peds rotation and the policy at the hospital is 10cc hep flush. I have also heard them called both heplocks and saline locks.
