Features of the Jelco Optiva I.V. Catheters:
Smiths Medical's OPTIVA I.V. Catheter provides superior insertion and ease of use by featuring an electropolished "V"-Point needle, finely tapered catheter shoulders, thin walled construction, radiopacity and incorporates OCRILON polyurethane.
OCRILON polyurethane is firm upon insertion of the cannula, then softens to conform in the vein. OCRILON is a clear, radiopaque polyurethane, allowing for easy flashback visualization.
A comparative, randomized clinical study of the risk factors for infusion-related phlebitis found OCRILON polyurethane catheter material to reduce the risk of phlebitis by nearly 60% as compared with FEP polymer (relative risk = 0.41; p = .0007).
