Overview

The Standard PA Monitoring Catheters are part of a complete line of pulmonary artery catheters offered with no natural rubber latex components to reduce the risk of patient latex allergy or hypersensitivity, without compromising performance.

A recent study of antilatex IgE antibodies in blood donors has shown that the prevalence of latex sensitivity may be as high as 6-12%1 or up to 37 million people in the U.S. alone.
