BD Nexiva™ Diffusics™

The BD Nexiva™ Diffusics™ System:

  • Reduces the forces that can cause catheter motion in the vein1*
  • Significantly less force to the vein during power injection1*
  • Now even smaller IVs (22 & 24 G) can meet the needs of faster protocols1
  • All-in-one catheter and extension set built for your power injector’s 325 psi setting
