Smiths Medical won FDA clearance and is releasing the DeltaVen Closed System Catheter, a product actually made by the Italian company Delta Med SpA. The peripheral IV catheter combines the needle, extension tubing, and an optional needlesless connector into one system. Clinicians can feel the insertion of the catheter into the vein during threading that’s done by simply sliding one part of the device against another.
It can be used for radiology/CT power injections, with a pressure rating of 330 PSI. On the other side it is also compatible with some of the smallest patients thanks to being the only 26 gauge safety catheter now available in the U.S., with a priming volume down to .2 millileters.
Here’s a video showing off the features of the DeltaVen catheter:
