Hemodialysis catheters are catheters that provide temporary vascular access for hemodialysis until a permanent access is available or until another type of dialysis therapy is substituted. The multiple lumen catheters contain two large bore lumen that are connected to the dialysis machine to form a complete circuit for the removal and return of the patient‘s blood during treatment. intra offers two- and three-lumen catheters for subclavian-jugular-femoral application. The radiopaque, thermosensitive and anti-kinking PUR-material with a blue soft-tip guarantees a high biocompatibility. It is extremely smooth and has a non-thrombogenic surface. The catheters are semirigid at room temperature and get softer when reaching body temperature thus minimizing the possibility of vessel wall injuries. It allows also the catheter to remain for extended periods in the body. The catheters are intended for percutaneous introduction using the Seldinger Technique. The catheter can be changed using the existing puncture.
All catheters consists of high flexible thin-walled polyurethane which ensures very high flow rates. It is anti-thrombogen and biocom-
patible. At body temperature it gets very soft, swims in the vessel and reduces clearly the risk of phlebitis. The catheters are equipped
with extremely soft-tip. A perforation of the vein or damage of the intima are excluded practically. All intra-catheters have a cm-marking.
The X-ray-opaque material offers an extremely high X-ray-ability. The catheter clips offer a safe and fast fixation.
Multilumen catheter for measuring and monitoring cardiac output and for continuous infusion, blood sampling and blood gas analysis. The catheter is made of radiopaque polyurethane. The marker rings have an interval of 10 cm from distal. The enclosed syringe for inflation of the balloon corresponds to the balloon capacity. The symmetrical balloon is made of Latex and individually checked on pressure resistance and leakages.
