Introcan Safety® Deep Access

Introcan Safety® Deep Access is a longer length IV catheter which is designed to facilitate ultrasound guided access to deeper veins, a procedure usually required for patients with difficult intravenous access.  Introcan Safety® Deep Access serves as an alternative to multiple short length peripheral IV catheters which don’t last the required duration of therapy, or, as a simple to insert, more cost-effective alternative to a midline.
