Overview

A smaller-sized catheter with power injection, improved kink-resistance, and the same flow rates (at pressures under 250 mm Hg) as the original Power-Trialysis™ catheter.1

Frequently Asked Questions

The rate of recirculation is less than 2% on average in both the forward and reverse directions, when tested in vitro.1

It comes in both the straight and a curved extension version but not an Alphacurve® catheter.

The connectors for the dialysis lumens (blue and red) are acetal, the power injection lumen connector (purple), and the extension legs are polyurethane. The catheter shaft and tip are made from Thermosensitive Bodysoft polyurethane which softens at body temperature.

Up to 400 mL/min1

No, the BD repair kit is not indicated for the Power-Trialysis Slim-Cath catheter.

Each kit includes an 11–13 Fr. and a 12–14 Fr. Dualator Vessel Dilator. Placers should dilate to the largest portion of each Dualator to allow the catheter to more easily enter the tissue and vessel. Two dilators are provided to progressively widen the insertion site.

A surgical gown.

The Power-Trialysis Slim-Cath catheter is compatible with the following agents: Povidone iodine, 0.55% sodium hypochlorite solution, chlorhexidine gluconate 4%, chlorhexidine gluconate 2% solution, dilute aqueous sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, and bacitracin zinc ointments in petrolatum bases.

The catheter tip must be in the lower superior vena cava for optimal performance. If placed femorally, the catheter tip should be placed in the inferior vena cava to minimize recirculation. Catheters greater than 24 cm are intended for femoral vein insertion. CAUTION: For jugular and subclavian insertion, the catheter tip should not be located in the right atrium. WARNING: Verification of the catheter tip location must be confirmed by x-ray.

The physician will determine this based on the patient needs. The Power-Trialysis Slim-Cath catheter can be used for other therapies concurrent with dialysis The third lumen is completely independent from the two dialysis lumens and is indicated for power injection of contrast media, and central venous pressure monitoring; and can be used for blood draws and medication delivery without the need for a separate access.

Contrast-induced nephropathy is most commonly defined as acute renal failure occurring within 48 hours of exposure to intravascular radiographic contrast material that is not attributable to other causes.

The third lumen should be locked per hospital protocol for central lines. The priming volume is printed on the extension leg and is also available in the instructions for use (IFU).

The largest guidewire that may be used is a 0.035 in (0.89 mm).

The catheter shaft is oval for two reasons. First, the oval shaft improves the catheter’s kink resistance. Second, the oval shape allows for the internal kidney-shaped lumen design which provides high flow rates of 400 mL/min1 The wide axis of the catheter is 15 Fr., while the short axis is 10 Fr. The French size of the catheter is the average of those numbers, 12 Fr.

The main difference is a smaller French size. The Power-Trialysis Slim-Cath catheter is a 12 Fr. and the Power-Trialysis catheter is a 13 Fr. According to BD's internal market research, some physicians prefered a smaller sized catheter that could still flow at a high rate. A smaller catheter increases our product offering to accommodate varying vascular needs.

This warning was added to ensure a syringe was not used for blood infusions to prevent high pressures. Blood transfusions through a blood pump are allowed.
