Subcutaneous Catheter Securement Device
Interrad Medical, Inc. recently received FDA 510(k) clearance of its SecurAcath Universal™ Subcutaneous Catheter Securement System. The SecurAcath Universal System can reduce costs by decreasing the time required to secure, maintain and remove catheters. The device design allows for improved catheter site cleaning and minimizes catheter motion which may reduce catheter-related infections. Finally, the SecurAcath Universal System is sutureless; therefore, it eliminates the potential for needlestick injuries that can occur when suturing catheters.
The device is currently available in 5F and 7F sizes and the Company plans to expand size availability in the coming months. Ultimately, the SecurAcath Universal System has the potential to become the next standard of care for catheter securement.
