When compared to a conventional IV catheter in a 2014 published clinical study, a 1” AccuCath™ Intravascular Catheter was shown to*:

Increase first attempt success:

  • May require fewer PIV devices

Extend dwell times

  • May lead to fewer IV components compared to a conventional IV catheter

Reduce complication rates

  • In one study 89% of AccuCath™ patients completed therapy with a single device

Increase patient satisfaction

Lower overall costs to the provider

Features and Benefits

Engineered to navigate tortuous vessel anatomy for atraumatic delivery, our patented AccuTip™ guidewire is designed to minimize the need for unnecessary needle advancement that may lead to vessel damage and complications.

Features

  1. AccuTip™ Nitinol Guidewire
    Coiled tip guidewire engineered to navigate tortuous vessel anatomy for atraumatic delivery. Designed to minimize the need for unnecessary needle advancement that may lead to vessel damage and complications.
  2. Echogenic Guidewire Design
    Echogenicity of the guidewire is designed to aid in insertion when using ultrasound devices.
  3. BD Instaflash™ Needle Technology
    Allows for the immediate visual confirmation of vessel entry. Designed to mitigate the potential for intima damage and vessel perforation. This feature is made possible through a small notch in the needle cannula.
  4. AccuFlash™ Secondary Flash Chamber
    Secondary blood flash chamber designed to give clinicians an additional indicator of successful cannulation/vascular access.
  5. Power Injectable
    Indicated for power injection with contrast media up to 6 mL/sec, 300psi.
  6. Blood Control Valve 1
    Designed to reduce blood flow into the catheter hub after insertion until a secure luer connection is made.
  7. Improved Flow Actuator 3
    Redesigned to improve flushability of catheter hub.
  8. Needlestick Safety 2
    Built-in needlestick safety spring retracts at the push of a button.
  9. Textured Grip Housing
    Designed for device control during placement.
  10. Colored Guidewire Slider
    Designed for visibility and identification of the gauge size.

 

Blood leakage from the hub may occur unless a complete luer connection is made within 10 seconds.

2 If needle retraction does not occur, depress white button again. If the needle does not retract on the second attempt, carefully withdraw the needle and guidewire and contact BD.
