Midline options designed to fit the needs of clinicians and patients
WAYNE, Pa., Sept. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX) releases their new Arrow® Pressure Injectable Midline portfolio in the US and Canada, designed to help alleviate line identification confusion. Clinicians can choose between the Arrowg+ard Blue Advance® Midline with antimicrobial and antithrombogenic protection or the traditional Arrow® Midline, both of which are available in single and double lumen options.1,2
Without quick and easy identification between midlines and PICCs, clinicians may mistakenly infuse medications through midlines that should only be infused through a central venous access device. These complications can cause disruption in patient therapy and, if serious, could lead to line replacement.
Teleflex conducted extensive research with industry-leading vascular access professionals to select the enhancements in the new Arrow® Midline Catheters. Clinician-inspired updates to the portfolio include:
Eye catching, yellow colored catheter features and labeling to help reduce line confusion and promote patient safety
A robust offering of 14 different kit configurations, all with pressure injection capabilities to facilitate procedural efficiency and mitigate risks
A new Arrow® ergonomic trimmer that allows for multiple precise cuts and easy visualization
Premium components available such as one-piece, full-body fenestrated drape, ultrasound probe cover with gel, and Tegaderm™ CHG Securement Dressing
“The Arrowg+ard Blue Advance® Midline catheter portfolio provides protection by reducing thrombus accumulation and the primary pathogens responsible for most healthcare associated infections1,2. With multiple levels of protection, critical innovations, and a streamlined workflow, it’s the perfect solution to deliver vital medications.” said Lisa Kudlacz, President and General Manager, Vascular Access Division.
