A releasable tubing connector including a male part that can be
selectively fastened to a female part. The male and female parts are
provided with internal valve assemblies that cooperate with one another
to permit fluid to flow through the tubing connector. When the male and
female parts are fastened together, fluid can flow through the releasable
tubing connector. On the other hand, when the male and female parts are
unfastened, fluid can flow through neither.
