High Flow catheters – Multicath HF UP
During trauma, sepsis, shock, burn, and high-risk surgery, intravascular volume loss can occur. This hypovolemia is induced either by a pathologic vasodilation that leads to a marked blood pressure decrease or by acute haemorrhages and burns.
This life-threatening patient condition is an emergency and requires first-line large fluid replacement to avoid the risk of morbidity or mortality. With the new Multicath High Flow UP central venous catheters (CVC), you can achieve high volume replacement therapy.
Multicath HF UP
Multicath HF UP are multi-lumen CVC made of polyurethane and designed to achieve rapid and safe volume replacement up to 400mL/min on their proximal lumen.
Fluid replacement is commonly performed using I.V. cannula because traditional multi-lumen CVC do not provide high flowrates. Now, with Multicath HF UP, flowrate is not a limitation and the use of extra I.V. cannula are no longer required. All you need is a Multicath HF UP and an arterial line to hemodynamically manage your patient.
Multicath HF UP are available in 3 and 5 lumen configurations and 12.5cm, 16cm and 20cm length.
Multicath HF UP have a high pressure rated line. The green distal lumen enables a flow rate up to 5mL/s at a viscosity of 11.8mPas.
Multicath HF UP are delivered with safety components:
