AngioDynamics has launched a new Morpheus SMART PICC bedside insertion kit and new 5 French (5F) Dual Lumen Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) as part of the continued growth of its Morpheus SMART PICC line.
The Morpheus SMART PICC 5F Dual Lumen Smart PICC power-injectable catheter power-injectable catheter is designed to provide a superior flow rate of 5ml/second for purposes of CT imaging.
The system’s performance upgrade involves advanced catheter shaft technology, which couples the pushability needed for PICC placement with pliability that minimizes the risk of vessel trauma and phlebitis.
The system also employs Smart Taper technology, which is designed to reduce the risk of thrombosis by allowing the catheter’s diameter to quickly taper from seven French to a precise five French.
AngioDynamics senior vice president and general manager Shawn McCarthy said these two launches represent their commitment to provide clinicians with a full portfolio of superior options within their Morpheus SMART PICC product line.
William Beaumont Hospital’s PICC Team director Julie Amicucci said the new AngioDynamics insertion kit is slimmer, which will allow to store more kits per cart, and it has everything that is required for the procedure.
"This will allow us to provide better patient care by getting to patients faster, ultimately saving time and the hospital money," Amicucci said.
