Total Intravenous Anaesthesia (TIVA) sets with detachable extension sets

Combining patient safety with ease of use

Contact us
Background Image

Total Intravenous Anaesthesia (TIVA) sets in combination with Target-Controlled Infusion (TCI) pumps ensure the patient receives a more predictable ONSET of drugs, greater accuracy and ease of maintenance and a more predictable OFFSET of drugs1,2

The infusion set through which TIVA is delivered should have a luer lock connector at each end, an anti-siphon valve on the drug delivery line(s) and an anti-reflux valve on any fluid administration line. Drug and fluid lines should join as close to the patient as possible to minimize dead space. The use of administration sets specifically designed for TIVA is recommended3

Features and Benefits

Integral anti-siphon valve

  • Prevents accidental free-flow
  • Prevents back-flow of drugs

Color-coded anti-siphon valves and clamps

Clear distinction between lines (i.e., white for propofol and green for remifentanil)

Kink resistant polyurethane gravity line with back-check valve

  • Helps to prevent unwanted occlusions
  • Ensures connection for a gravity infusion line, antibiotics, bolus drug, etc.
  • Back-check valve prevents back-flow of drugs

Multiple lumen hub with negligible common fluid space

  • Drugs have no common space in the sets
  • Reduces risk of drug interaction

PE-lined tubing

  • Prevents drug sorption
  • No leaching of phthalates into fluid path
