WAYNE, Pa., June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), one of the world’s leading medical technology providers, today announced the launch of an Arrow Pressure-Assisted Injectable Midline Catheter in Europe, Middle East and Africa Region. The addition of the Pressure Injectable Catheter further enhances the Midline portfolio to meet the expanded needs of clinicians and is designed to improve patient safety.
The new Arrow 20cm Pressure Injectable Midline with bright yellow hubs and labeling will help clinicians overcome catheter identification confusion, which can lead to infusion errors that can harm patients. Additional features include:
- Available in 1 and 2 light configurations
- TAPERFREE design, which ensures a constant French size from the distal end to the hub of the catheter to reduce the risk of venous stasis. This design is aligned with INS standards for selecting a catheter with a catheter to vein ratio of 45% or less from the distal end to the hub
- Tray configuration designed to facilitate procedural efficiency
- Arrow Ergonomic trimmer that allows multiple and precise cuts with its window for easy viewing of centimeter markings on the catheter
- Additional sharps safety components to meet INS standards
“The new catheter design is a direct result of our partnership with clinicians and illustrates how we work together to identify needs and develop solutions that help them improve patient care,” said Matthew James, President EMEA. from Teleflex. “We are excited to bring the Arrow Pressure Injectable Midline Catheter to market in the region and expand our portfolio to meet the many vascular access needs.
The new Arrow Pressure Injectable Midline enables up to 5ml/second pressure injection through either lumen to mitigate diagnostic and treatment delays associated with secondary device replacement.
