BD Nexiva™ Closed IV Catheter System

Seamless patient care

Contact Us

The BD Nexiva™ closed IV catheter system is the integrated IV catheter demonstrating longer dwell times and reduced complication rates versus the traditional open system.1,2*

BD Nexiva™ IV catheter integrates key features that help provide better care and experience for your patients, efficiently and cost effectively.1

Features and Benefits

BD Vialon™ biomaterial


Proprietary BD Vialon™ biomaterial softens up to 70% in the vein, enabling longer dwell times 3† and reducing the chance of mechanical phlebitis by up to 50%.3†

BD Instaflash™ needle technology

Provides quick blood visualisation that may help improve insertion success and therefore reduce insertion attempts.

Built-in stabilisation platform

Reduces dislodgement by 84% and complies with the guidelines for catheter stabilisation set by the Infusion Nurses Society (INS)4 and Centers for Desease Control (CDC).5

Pre-attached extension set

Pre-attached extension tubing

Pre-attached extension tubing offers a closed system to minimise blood exposure during catheter insertion*2 meeting the INS standards.4

Reduces complications

Integrated extension tubing and stabilisation platform is designed to reduce manipulation and movement at the site and has been shown to reduce dislodgement and phlebitis by up to 50%.1,2

Lessens blood exposure risks

98% reduced blood exposure during insertion due to the BD Nexiva IV catheter pre-assembled systems.2*

BD Nexiva IV catheter dwells longer

In a randomised study comparing the BD Nexiva IV catheter to an open catheter system, the median dwell time for BD Nexiva IV catheters was six days versus four days for the open system.1

BD Nexiva IV catheter preserves insertion sites

By preserving sites for longer, the BD Nexiva IV catheter helps patients get the medication they need as scheduled, potentially decreasing their length of stay.1,2


May help reduce cost and delays in treatment

In a 2014 clinical study, the longer dwell time (6 days)|| of the BD Nexiva™ IV catheter led to cost reductions of up to €786,257 per year per 1000 beds compared with an open system.1**

 Best Practices

Increased Catheter Stabilisation

Catheter stabilisation is recognised as an intervention to decrease the risk for complications and may be advantageous in preventing catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs).4,5

Integrated Configuration

The Infusion Nurses Society recommends limiting the use of add-on devices to reduce the potential for contamination, additional manipulation, and disconnection.4
