Bi-Caval Dual Lumen Catheter
The world’s first single site, kink protected, veno-venous bi-caval dual lumen catheter designed to enable optimal extracorporeal life support.
Minimizing patient trauma
For critically ill patients requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), cannulation can be traumatic to the vasculature. With the Avalon Elite Bi-Caval Dual-Lumen Catheter, only one cannula is inserted into the patient’s internal jugular vein.
The world’s first single site,
kink resistant, veno-venous device
It matches the body’s natural flow ratios by simultaneously removing deoxygenated blood from both the superior vena cava (SVC) and inferior vena cava (IVC), and returning oxygenated blood to the right atrium (RA).
A single-site venous vessel access
Brings advantages like freeing the femoral vein, which facilitates patient participation in physical therapy or preserves it as another access point.
If extubated on ECMO, the patient can be more easily mobilized.
In addition, by not cannulating the femoral vein and using just one site for vessel access, there is one less site for infection and a reduction in nursing care. It also decreases chances for accidential dislodgement.
