ArterioSelis a transparent arterial catheter with radiopaque lines introduced using theSeldinger techniqueand equipped with a puncture needle allowing visualization of the arterial pulsations without blood spillage on needle insertion.
The Seldinger technique makes arterial puncture easier particularly in hypotensive patients with a weak peripheral pulse and when arteries are atherosclerosed or narrow.
- The puncture needle is fitted with a visualization chamber allowing to confirm that the vessel punctured is an artery (pulsatile movement of the blood). The needle is also fitted with a silicone BLS valve (BLS: bloodless system) to avoid loss of blood during vessel puncture and a funnel hub to facilitate the insertion of the guidewire.
- The arterial catheter can be inserted in a variety of arteries, but the most common sites for the placement of this catheter are the radial artery (code 115.0901) and the femoral artery (code 115.1201).
