Description

The SuperCath Safety Clampcath is a fistula catheter for Hemodialysis Blood Access. Unlike typical vascular access needles, after the cannulation the metal needle is removed and only a plastic cannula is left inside the vessel during dialysis.

The SuperCath Safety Clampcath is ideal for patients with:

  • Difficult to access fistulas
  • Metal allergies
  • Anxiety, dementia, or restlessness
  • Nocturnal or Nocturnal Home Hemodialysis
  • A maturing and fragile fistula
  • Infectious diseases such as Hepatitis A, B, or HIV

The Supercath Safety Clampcath is exceptionally efficient, and delivers blood flow rates equivalent to a metal fistula needle that is one gauge size larger. In addition, the Supercath Safety Clampcath delivers less cannulation trauma than traditional needles.
