Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) October 1, 2010
Navilyst Medical announced today the addition of the Navigator® BioNavigation® System manufactured by CORPAK MedSystems to its product portfolio in the U.S.A. The Navigator BioNavigation System is designed to aid in the accurate placement of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs). The use of tip location devices in the U.S.A. is growing due to the time, costs and challenges faced with current PICC insertion practices.
The Navigator BioNavigation System is designed to help improve procedural efficiency by reducing radiation exposure and the incidence of incorrectly positioned PICCs. As a battery operated, hand-held instrument, the Navigator BioNavigation System provides an audible and visual indicator to let the clinician know the position of the catheter tip inside the body during the catheter insertion procedure.
The Navigator BioNavigation System is compatible with Navilyst Medical’s line of PICCs, including the Xcela® PICC with PASV® Valve Technology, which combines power injection with the innovative design of the PASV Valve for an advanced vascular access solution.
The addition of the Navigator BioNavigation System, as a complementary technology with Navilyst Medical’s PICC portfolio, demonstrates Navilyst Medical’s commitment in helping to make PICC insertion procedures safer and more cost effective.
