Infection Prevention Central Venous Catheter

Infection Prevention Central Venous Catheter The Bactiguard Infection Protection Central Venous Catheter, BIP CVC, with Bactiguard coating, reduces the risk of microbial adhesion and colonization. Bactiguard coated CVCs have been shown to reduce catheter-related infections in high-risk patients, when compared to uncoated CVC.The Bactiguard Infection Protection (BIP) technology is based on the application of a very thin noble metal coating, consisting of gold, palladium and silver, to medical devices. The Bactiguard coating is firmly bound to the surface of the device and reduces the adhesion and growth of microbes. The BIP CVC is used to administer drugs and intravenous solutions and to sample blood. It is made of polyurethane, coated with Bactiguard coating, and can be used up to 30 days.
