Stabilising device for vascular access
Peripheral intravenous catheter insertions are associated with a variety of complications, such as phlebitis, infiltrations, occlusions, dislodgements, and infections. These complications can lead to pre-mature removal of the catheter before the expiry of the needed dwell time in around 50 % of the applications.1) In order to overcome these problems, Jenkin Tsui and Dr. Ban Tsui, developed together with PAJUNK®, the Tsui E-IV, which with its unique design can minimise a large part of these failures.
Intravenously lying Tsui E-IV
The extra-long Tsui E-IV extends the indwelling intravenous catheter.
A more stable position can reduce the danger of an unwanted dislodgement of the intravenous catheter.
Integrated injection tube with Luer Lock Connector
The Tsui E-IV with its Luer Lock Connection allows for a direct injection via an injection tube.
Kinking resistance provided by Tsui E-IV
The indwelling intravenous catheter becomes more stable once inserted with the Tsui E-IV inner catheter. To release any blood occlusions, the new Tsui E-IV can be exchanged replacing the previously occluded inner catheter.
Blockages can be resolved without the risk of dislodgement of the indwelling intravenous catheter.
Atraumatic soft catheter tip
Protects the vein wall against injuries that can happen from conventional sharp-edged Teflon indwelling intravenous catheters.
Protection against infiltration
Soft catheter material
The soft Tsui E-IV generates less friction at the vein wall.
Phlebitis is minimised.
