This ensures you're doing the best for every patient now and down the road." ~ Stephen Harris, Director of Research and Development,...
Patients with kidney disease and renal failure have limited vascular access routes, making vein preservation critically important. Gaining vascular access in these patients can be challenging due to stenosis – thickening, hardening, stiffening, and narrowing – of the veins.
Tunneled central catheters, also known as Perm caths, can be small bore or large bore lines, and are used when vascular access is needed over a long period of time (anywhere from two weeks to several months). This makes them a good solution when clinically indicated for hemodialysis during renal (kidney) failure, as well as chemotherapy, antibiotics, parenteral nutrition and more.
Patients with acute or chronic kidney disease can need different types of Dialysis Catheters – Acute/Temp Vas-Caths and Tunneled Perm Caths. Having a skilled partner who can perform these procedures as soon as they are clinically indicated, without delay – and at the patient’s bedside – can improve patient outcomes and decrease hospital and patient costs significantly.
