EXTENDED LENGTH
EXTENDED DWELL

Introcan Safety® Deep Access is a peripheral IV catheter (PIVC) designed for difficult intravenous access (DIVA) patients.

With the catheter of Introcan Safety® Deep Access being double the length of most standard peripheral IV catheters4, it allows access to deeper veins, with studies highlighting the positive correlation between increasing the catheter to vein ratio and dwell time5.

75% of vascular access experts feel that a standard length PIVC is not long enough6

Standard length PIVCs - What is the issue?

Catheter dislodgement.8

Infiltration since the catheter is often not long enough to reach the vein8,9

Use of an unnecessarily large gauge of PIVC to try to gain increased length of the catheter which can increase pain on insertion and the risk of mechanical phlebitis

50% of PIVCs fail within the first 24 hours10


 

What's the cost of a failed cannulation?

Material costs7

  • Safety PIVC
  • Skin preparation
  • Tourniquet
  • Gloves
  • Dressing
  • Pre-filled flush syringe
  • Needlefree extension

Impact on the patient

  • Multiple painful attempts 
  • Delay in treatment
  • Increased length of stay
  • Increased risk of:
    - Phlebitis
    - Thrombosis
    - Infection
  • Escalation to a more costly invasive device

72% increase in dwell time when using an ultralong PIVC with the optimum catheter length in the vein being >27.5mm5

Features and benefits

Longer length catheters have shown decreased failure rates relative to standard catheters because the catheter tip is better stabilised as it lies in the larger diameter, more proximal vein8
