ARGYLE™ Umbilical Vessel Catheters

ARGYLE™ Umbilical Vessel Catheters
ARGYLE™ Umbilical Vessel Catheters
Designed with both the patient and the clinician in mind, ARGYLE™
Umbilical Vessel Catheters (UVC) sets the standard of care for premature
infants. The ARGYLE™ product portfolio includes single, dual and triple
lumen UVCs and a full line of NEO-SERT™ insertion trays. All products
are latex and DEHP free. UVCs benefit the patient by reducing the need
for painful venipunctures and provides double or triple the access of a
single lumen catheter. This allows simultaneous multiple therapies from
one device. The NEO-SERT™ insertion trays provide everything needed
for the procedure in one preassembled disposable tray. The UMB-E™
catheter anchor provides a convenient, safe and secure way to anchor umbilical catheters.

Frequently Asked Questions
Question
Answer
Do the catheters or insertion
trays or umbilical anchor contain
latex or DEHP?
Our Polyurethane catheters do not contain latex or DEHP and are also latexfree.
What is the benefit of a
polyurethane catheter?
Most UVCs are made from either Silicone or Polyurethane. Polyurethane, while
slightly stiffer upon insertion, features larger lumens allowing for greater flow
rates. Polyurethane softens similarly to Silicone at body temperature.
What are the inner lumen sizes
for the multilumen catheters?
Sizes vary from 15 gauge to 23 gauge depending on the catheter.
Are your catheters radiopaque?
Yes.
Can I trim the UVC?
No. Our UVCs go through a special manufacturing process to provide an
atraumatic tip on the UVC. Trimming the UVC will remove the tip.
Do the UVCs come with trays?
Yes. We offer catheters, catheters in trays and stand alone insertion trays. Our
8888160119 tray includes both a 3.5 Fr and a 5 Fr UVC.
Do your NEO-SERT™ insertion
trays come with safety needles?
The 43201 has MAGELLAN™ Safety Needles and a Safety Scalpel.
Where can I find the priming
volume for the UVCs?
Priming volumes are printed on the front of each pouch.
Which lumen should be used for
tranducing blood pressure?
We suggest using the large lumen for pressure monitoring.
What volume of flush do you
recommend for the lumens that
are not in use?
Flush with 0.5 cc to 1.0 cc of heparinized saline every 6 hours for those lumens
not in use.
If we are only running one
infusion, which lumen should be
heparin locked-off?
Infuse through the smaller lumen and leave the primary (largest) lumen for
intermittent or bolus infusions.
Should we close off an infusion
lumen if we are attempting to
aspirate blood from another
lumen?
Yes.
Which lumen should be used for
aspirating blood?
The largest lumen.
Indications
The catheter is intended for short-term vascular access via the umbilical vessels in neonatal patients
1. Short-term vascular access
Contraindications
1. These catheters are contraindicated for patients exhibiting renal, gastrointestinal, cardiac, or
periumbilical abnormalities (including clinical indicators for umbilical infection).
2. The use of the product is contraindicated in patients with known sensitivities or allergies to its
components.
Precautions
1. Catheter lumens should be flushed routinely if used intermittently, before and after medications are
administered and before and after blood samples are aspirated. Amount, strength and frequency of
heparin flush should be determined by hospital policy.
2. Routine umbilical stump care should be administered to help prevent infection.
3. To remove catheter, withdraw it slowly.
4. Use a 10 cc or larger syringe to flush lumen in vivo. Smaller syringes may generate extreme
pressure which could rupture the catheter.
5. Directions described herein do not represent all medically acceptable protocols, nor are they
intended as a substitute for the physicians experience and judgment treating any specific patient.
6. Exercise caution when using sharp instruments near the catheter.
7. Exercise caution when suturing catheter to avoid cutting, indenting, or compromising the catheter in
any way.
8. Always observe sterile technique when handling the catheter during insertion and when
administering routine care to the catheterized umbilical stump.
Warnings
1. Do not use if unit package is opened or damaged
2. Umbilical catheters should be inserted and removed only by a qualified, licensed physician or other
healthcare practitioner authorized by and under the direction of such physician
3. Use of an indwelling catheter in an umbilical vessel may improve the care of sick infants; however, it
may also lead to serious complications. Use of this device requires careful consideration of the
benefits and risks involved and a decision as to whether the need for the catheter outweighs the risk
of the catheterization procedure and the subsequent presence of an indwelling catheter.
4. Do not use clamps on umbilical vessel catheters
5. Placement must be determined by x-ray
6. Check extremities for discoloration and blanching while the catheter is indwelling
7. If a catheter thrombus is suspected, do not flush. Follow hospital protocol and physicians orders for
aspiration and declotting.
