BD Nexiva™ closed IV catheter system

Provide seamless care, with an IV catheter that lasts

The BD Nexiva™ closed IV catheter system, the first-of-its-kind all-in-one closed system IV catheter, is designed to minimize the risk of IV catheter failure.1

Longer dwell times

Proprietary BD Vialon™ biomaterial enables longer dwell times,2‡ supporting the current Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice for clinically indicated site rotation.3

Integrated system

As an integrated system, the BD Nexiva system needs fewer add-on devices, minimizing the number of manipulations that may lead to touch contamination and accidental disconnections.3,4||


The catheter's built-in stabilization platform* minimizes movement that can lead to catheter complications, restarts and associated costs, and reduces dislodgement by 84%.5† The system also meets INS standards and CDC guidelines for catheter stabilization.1,3

Quick blood visualization

BD Instaflash™ needle technology quick blood visualization may help improve insertion success and therefore, reduce insertion attempts.

Reduced costs

In a 2014 clinical study, it was demonstrated that BD Nexiva catheters had a low rate of phlebitis and a median dwell time of 144 hours for those in place for 24 hours or more.6 The longer dwell times of closed systems led to a cost reduction of approximately $1M per year per 1,000 beds compared to open systems.6

Minimized treatment delays and complications

The BD Nexiva system is power-injection compatible, minimizing the need to exchange catheter or tubing. Single and dual ports and 18- to 22-G catheters are indicated for use in computed tomography (CT) power injection. Furthermore, the integrated system prevents leaking at the catheter-extension set connection.
