HighFlow sets the bar for tunnelized dialysis catheters. Fabricated from a special carbothane formulation, the HighFlow offers a number of important material characteristics that allow for thin walls which maximize the inner lumen diameters, offer strength while resisting kinking, resist deterioration from alcohol and non-alcohol based antiseptics, and result in a material which is thermosensitive and compliant enough to optimize patient comfort.
HighFlow also provides a wider cuff, which allows for a larger surface area for tissue in-growth. This provides a more secure anchoring of the catheter. The size, length, and priming volumes appear on each catheter to facilitate quick reference.
Our HighFlow catheters are available in straight or curved "IJ" configurations, and an optional maximum barrier kit is available providing a patient cover, surgical gown, surgical mask, head cover, and latex-free surgical gloves.
The introducer tray includes an improved tunneler flexible enough to allow excellent "shape-ability" yet providing sufficient strength for tunneling. In addition, the included safety scalpel locks securely into the tray helping to prevent unintended mishaps.
