  • Veno-Venous Access

    Ideally suited for the simultaneous drainage and reinfusion of blood through a dual lumen design in the right atrium during ECMO procedures.

  • Balanced Design

    This catheter design has the right combination of flexibility, bend radius, collapse resistance, and recovery from kinking to be ideal for ECMO with centrifugal or roller pumps. A wire-reinforced soft polymer tip resists suction pressure during the ECMO procedure.

  • Radiopaque

    The tip section of the catheter is radiopaque, visible under radiograph/fluoroscopy. However, the catheter can be inserted without the need for radiograph/fluoroscopy utilizing the graduation marks on the catheter.

  • Neonatal, Pediatric, and Adult Catheters

    Available in a range of sizes: 13F – 32F
