the catheter insertion site
to ensure cleanliness upon securement
method of securement between users
EFFECTIVELY SECURES CATHETERS
against internal migration forces and external catheter perturbations
EASY CATHETER REPOSITIONING
without removing adhesives
can be applied easily in under 2 minutes
is designed to secure umbilical cord catheters
while protecting the catheter insertion site
Umbilical Catheters are Lifelines for Neonates in the NICU
Umbilical catheters are normally held with tape and adhesives,
which were not designed to secure and protect one of the most important components of neonatal care.
Up To Two Thirds
of umbilical venous catheters (UVCs) migrate after placement

20% of neonates with UVCs
develop UVC-related complications,
95% of which have malpositioned catheters
Mutlu M, et al. The Journal of Maternal-Fetal & Neonatal Medicine 2016, 29(17)2817-2822.
UVC malposition is associated with necrotizing enterocolitis, pericardial effusion, and infections.
