Multi-lumen and length Options
Multicath Expert comes with a choice of 2-5 lumens and in a range of lengths so you can choose your catheter depending on patient and therapy requirements.
The 12.5 quin lumen option allows for full catheter insertion, reduces the risk of catheter migration, infection and erosion, or perforation associated with intra-cardiac placement.
Enhanced Patient Safety with Antimicrobial Technology
Multicath Expert is Impregnated with Silver Ion, for antimicrobial properties. The innovative silver ion impregnation that releases throughout the lifecycle of the product.
Ionic silver is released at the catheters surface to reduce the risk of bacteria colonisation. Reducing the incidence of catheter related blood stream infections (CRIBSI’s).
Epic3 recommendation: Use an antimicrobial-impregnated central venous access device for adult patients, where the central venous catheter is expected to remain.
