Kit includes catheter-over-needle introducer; a long catheter with stiffening wire; and a drum.
The Drum houses the long catheter; and is an advancement system designed to minimize touch contamination.
Introduction technique: Long catheter through introducer catheter.
The INTRODUCER CATHETER REMAINS INDWELLING and the long catheter hub locks onto the introducer catheter hub. Since the introducer catheter remains indwelling; the long catheter can be easily replaced through the same introducer; which avoids another needle stick.
Long catheter material is radiopaque kink-resistant polyurethane; embedded with a fluoro-polymer formula designed to aid in ease of placement.
