“It was pretty cool because it had this tension device which I wish I invented. I think it will keep the amount of tape to a minimum and keep patients from pulling out their IVs. Closed system, passive safety devices are the wave of the future.”
The development of the NovaCath™ Integrated IV Catheter System was based on extensive clinical immersion and research into the needs of both healthcare workers and patients.
This innovative next generation IV catheter system incorporates a variety of patent-pending design elements which will establish a new standard in short-peripheral IV catheter design, functionality, and performance.
Integrated Safety IV Catheter System
Pre-assembled, closed system integrates the catheter, high pressure extension tubing, multi-use flow control clamp and stabilization technology.
Designed to improve clinical outcomes, minimize occupational exposure to blood and standardize clinical practice
Advanced Catheter Stabilization™
Unique built-in stabilization features provide 360° of advanced stabilization on every single IV start. Innovative design transforms the pre-attached extension tubing, lateral stabilization arm and stabilization platform into a flexible stabilization frame.
Designed to preserve catheter integrity by minimizing catheter movement and reducing catheter dislodgement.
Next Generation Tubing Management
Unique internal 180° fluid path turn eliminates external “J-Loop” and creates a low profile design. Soft, ergonomic catheter hub supports high conformity to a variety of different insertion sites and patient populations.
Designed to improve patient comfort and reduce overall IV complications including dislodgement, infiltration, phlebitis, and occlusion.
Closed System Blood Control
Closed system design minimizes occupational exposure to blood while providing both primary flash visualization and secondary flash confirmation through the integrated extension tubing.
Extension tubing and dual vented flash chambers allow pre-priming of extension set without disruption to primary flash visualization.
Passive Needle Encapsulation
Designed to provide robust needle point protection and full needle encapsulation to eliminate occupational exposure to blood from the needle cannula. Full needle encapsulation minimizes the risk of blood splatter or leakage.
