About

Get to know the BD VeloCath™ Intravascular Catheter.

When you’re working with emergent and critically ill patients, getting vascular access quickly and successfully is a must. But what happens when you have a difficult to stick patient? Most clinicians are faced with two options — peripheral IVs and acute central lines. What if neither of those is ideal for the patient’s needs? Or if their peripheral vasculature just isn’t an option? That’s why we designed our BD VeloCath™ Intravascular Catheter specifically for these situations.

Features and Benefits

Accutip™ Nitinol Guidewire

Upper Copy1 field in Tab 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.Power injectable

Power injectable

With contrast media up to 6 mL/sec at 300 PSI.

Blood control valve

Designed to reduce blood flow into the catheter hub after insertion until a secure Luer connection is made. 

Air embolism is a potentially fatal complication associated with acute central line insertion procedures. The blood control valve is designed to reduce the risk of an air embolism.

Built-in needlestick safety

Spring retracts at the push of a button.
5.Instaflash™ Needle Technology

Instaflash™ Needle Technology

Allows for the immediate visual confirmation of vessel entry.

Flow rates

The BD VeloCath IV Catheter is designed to deliver fluids rapidly, allowing up to 3,720 mL/hr.

Improved flow actuator

Redesigned to improve flushability of catheter hub.

Accuflash™ Secondary Chamber

Designed to give clinicians an additional indicator of successful cannulation/vascular access.

Textured grip housing

Designed for device control placement.

Echogenic guidewire design

Echogenicity of the guidewire is designed to aid in insertion when using ultrasound devices.

An alternative to traditional PIVS and CVCs

According to BD market research1, emergency clinicians estimate that about 20% of acute CVCs are placed unnecessarily in the Emergency Department, simply because peripheral IV access could not be attained first. BD VeloCath™ IV Catheter can be a faster, less invasive option in many emergent situations.

Designed for difficult vascular access

Over 33% of adult patients have difficult venous access (DVA)2. In many of these patients, peripheral venous access is difficult or impossible to obtain using conventional methods, presenting a unique challenge to clinicians. In these situations, an alternative strategy must be pursued.

Focused on speed to therapy

 BD VeloCath™ IV Catheter allows clinicians to get vascular access quicker compared to the time it takes to perform a full central line procedure. Like a peripheral IV, this device requires fewer procedural steps than a traditional acute CVC, which means that this procedure is simpler, less invasive and allows the patient to receive therapy faster compared to an acute CVC.

Convenient kit options

We have basic, intermediate and max barrier access kits for use depending on the needs of the patient and the nature of the procedure.

A true utility device — Our Emergent Access Kit contains all of the components you may need to place, dress and secure this device in neck veins or peripherally.

Flow rates — The BD VeloCath™ IV Catheter is designed to deliver fluids rapidly, allowing up to 3,720 mL/hr.

Blood control

Air embolism is a potentially fatal complication associated with acute central line insertion procedures. The blood control valve is designed to reduce the risk of an air embolism.
