Multicath 4 Expert

Product code: 8158.167

Multicath 4 Expert is a 4 lumen radiopaque polyurethane antimicrobial catheter introduced by the Seldinger technique.
Multicath 4 Expert features 4 lumen completely separated on the whole length of the catheter to avoid any mixture of incompatible drugs / solutions.
At the proximal end of the catheter, the 4 lumen are connected to extension tubes of different length. Each extension tube is marked "DISTAL", "MEDIAL 1", "MEDIAL 2" and "PROXIMAL" and features a hub of a different colour so as to identify easily the different infusion lines.

The active ingredient used in the Expert technology is the silver ion-based antimicrobial agent AgION™, which is not just a surface coating but is incorporated into the wall of the catheter.
The catheters with Expert / AgION™ technology release silver ions from their internal and external surfaces, so that the catheter offers both intraluminal and extraluminal protective action. Because the silver ions are sensitive to light (photo-reactive), the catheter is supplied within a black protective sheath. These catheters are completely X-ray opaque.

The user has the choice of 2 types of introducer : 1 introducer needle or 1 PTFE short I.V. cannula.
