Central Venous Access for Paediatric Patients
As a core part of our critical care range, Vygon UK are leading the way in central venous catheters and CVC access devices. Paediatric CVC’s are unique due to the smaller size and therapeutic requirements. The range above demonstrates the variety available for paediatric patients. We also have CVCs for adult patients, and Highflow CVC’s for other acute therapeutic requirements.
Central Line Indications
Central venous catheters and CVC lines are forms of vascular access devices that are inserted into a central vein for short-term, acute IV therapies such as:
- Quick delivery of intravenous fluids
- Blood or blood products transfusions
- Intermittent injections
- Blood sampling
- Delivery of other drugs and medications
Multi-lumen Central Venous Catheters
Selecting your catheters with confidence is of even more importance in paediatric treatment. Select the right catheter for every patient with the range of Paediatric CVC’s from Vygon.
Choose the most appropriate size CVC for the patients’ requirements, depending on their age, weight and therapy needs with a range of dilator and catheter lengths and lumen numbers.
Our range of CVC’s for paediatrics come in 2 and 3 lumen options, so you can vary the CVC line choice depending on the therapeutic requirements of the patient.
CRBSI’s (Catheter Related Blood Stream Infections) and CVC Lines
For acute and emergency paediatric patients, reducing the risks of infection is of the upmost importance. As with all vascular access devices, CVC’s carry a risk of microbial contamination, potentially resulting in harmful catheter related blood stream infections.
