Vaxcel® PICC with PASV® Valve Technology

Demonstrated Reductions in Occlusion and Infection Rates.*

  • Located in the catheter hub, PASV® Valve Technology is designed to automatically resist backflow.
  • Printed priming volume and lumen size simplify care and maintenance. Catheter markings at 1cm increments facilitate customization of catheter length and monitoring of tip position.
  • Clampless, alcohol resistant extension tubes are designed to reduce the risk of damage and promote patient comfort.
  • Patented tapered extrusion is designed to increase kink resistance and help seal entry tract.
  • Advanced polyurethane material offers alcohol resistance for durability and convenient care, provides a balance of flexibility and strength to ease advancement, and promotes kink resistance to maintain flow.
  • Tip design is open-ended to facilitate over-the-wire placement. The tip is trimmable to allow adaptation, and the tip marker is designed to permit clear identification of untrimmed catheter tip.
  • Available in kits to accommodate both radiology suite and bedside PICC insertion.
