BD Nexiva™ Closed IV Catheter System

Preserving sites and protecting veins

Background Image

BD Nexiva™ Closed IV Catheter System is not just a catheter. BD Nexiva™ Closed IV Catheter System is an all-in-one PIVC, combining four individual devices in one: IV catheter, extension set, stabilization device, and needle-free connector/s. It is clinically demonstrated to have longer dwell times – dwelling up to 144 hours – and reduced complications versus an open system.*

Features and Benefits
May help reduce cost and delays in treatment

BD Nexiva™ has been shown to reduce costs and reduce treatment delays in clinical studies.**,1,3

Dwells longer

In a randomized study comparing the BD Nexiva™ to an open catheter system*, among peripheral IV catheters in place for over 24 hours, the median dwell time for BD Nexiva™ was up to 144 hours versus 96 hours for the open system.*,1

Preserves sites

BD Nexiva™ is an all-in-one PIVC shown to preserve sites for longer.†,1,3

Lessens blood exposure

By choosing the BD Nexiva™, you can reduce the risk of complications and blood exposure as well as preserve sites.**,1,3

Pre-attached extension set
Pre-attached extension set

BD Nexiva™ with integrated extension tubing and stabilization platform reduces the risk of dislodgement and related complications.‡,1,3


Reduces accidental dislodgement

The BD Nexiva™ with the built-in stabilization platform reduces dislodgement by 84%.‡,3

Built-in stabilization platform‡

Built-in stabilization platform

BD Nexiva™ with an integrated extension tubing and stabilization platform is designed to reduce manipulation and movement at the site and has been shown to reduce dislodgement and phlebitis.‡,1,3

First attempt insertion

BD Instaflash™ Needle Technology incorporates a notched needle, which is designed to improve first-stick success and reduce painful hit-and-miss insertions.4,5

Lowers chance of mechanical phlebitis

The BD Nexiva™ demonstrated a 29% reduction in phlebitis rates when compared to an open system.*,1

Proprietary BD Vialon™ Catheter Material softens, enabling longer dwell time and reducing the chance of phlebitis up to 69%.§,7-9


 Best Practices

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Catheter stabilization is recognized as an intervention to decrease the risk for phlebitis, catheter migration and dislodgement and may be advantageous in preventing catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs).3

Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice

Recommend limiting the use of add-on devices to reduce the potential for contamination, additional manipulation, and disconnection.5

Increased clinician safety

98% reduced blood exposure during insertion due to the BD Nexiva IV catheter preassembled system.2*

Increased catheter stabilization

Clinically demonstrated to reduce accidental dislodgement,2‡ meeting Infusion Nursing Society standards4 and CDC guidelines5 for catheter stabilization.

Reduced rate of complications

In a clinical study, results demonstrated a significant reduction in the rate of phlebitis (grade 2 or higher), PIVC-related complications, and infiltration in the closed system versus the open system group.1
