NovaCath 

Integrated IV Catheter System

Introducing the first closed peripheral IV catheter (PIVC) system with advanced catheter stabilization and integrated tubing management.

Overview

Only NovaCath has the safety and stability you’ve been asking for in an integrated, easy-to-use catheter system

The NovaCath PIVC integrates advanced catheter stabilization to help you cost-effectively comply with nursing guidelines while maximizing patient outcomes.

NovaCath is the first and only peripheral IV catheter designed to reduce catheter movements in all directions with an advanced stabilization frame that absorbs forces away from the insertion site. By integrating closed extension set technology, NovaCath also helps you simplify and standardize the IV catheter setup process, while reducing the risk of exposure to blood-borne pathogens.

Nursing guidelines recommend the use of stabilization devices on all peripheral IV catheters to minimize the risk of complications.1

Movement of an IV catheter relative to the vessel wall has been shown to lead to catheter complications, including infiltration, phlebitis, dislodgment, and mechanical failure, requiring catheters to be restarted before therapy is complete.2 As a result, maximizing catheter stabilization may help your efforts to minimize catheter movement and associated complications.

Setting a new Standard for Peripheral IV Catheter Safety

  • Cost-Effective Compliance

    Built-in stabilization frame lets you eliminate add-on securement devices
  • Help Minimize Complications

    Stabilization can help reduce complications and extend dwell times2
  • Reduce Exposure to Blood

    Closed system minimizes exposure during and after insertion
  • Simplify PIVC Setup and Insertion

    Integrated components help you standardize and expedite setup protocols

Maximize patient and clinician safety with IV catheter technology featuring advanced stabilization, passive needle encapsulation, and integrated IV tubing with closed system blood control.
