Insertion of arterial lines into small vessels can be technically challenging, particularly if the patient is hypotensive or peripherally vasoconstricted. ArterioSel uses the Leadercath Arterial catheter to provide a classic Seldinger technique for arterial cannulation, with minimal blood loss and clear visualisation of arterial access.

Simply put, ArterioSel allows you more time to place the catheter, under less pressure, and with minimal change in practice.

SeldiSafe is an 18G 70mm CVC introducer needle with a safety mechanism concealed in the hub, and only requires a one handed activation making it the perfect accessory in a busy clinical setting.

With 4000 sharps injury incidents reported each year in the UK (and at least as many go unreported), this is a major cause for concern for all healthcare workers*. SeldiSafe is just one in an extensive range of sharp safety products available from Vygon, enabling customers to implement the EU Directive on the prevention of sharps injuries in the hospital and healthcare sector, which came into effect on 13th May 2013.
