Long angiocaths for ultrasound-guided peripheral IV placements?
B. Braun Introcath Safety 18G 2.5 inch Catheters
Arrow 20G 2.5 inch Arterial Line Set (with guidewire)
Arrow 18G 3.25 inch Arterial Line Set (with guidewire)
Cook 5 Fr 15cm single lumen catheter (with guidewire)
A catheter that I've had good success using is the Arrow Twin-Cath (one 18G and one 20G lumen, 1.75 inches). Its length is on the shorter side but it's a nice alternative to traditional angiocaths for ultrasound-guided PIV placement.
These all have pressure ratings, do they not? Can you do a CT angio through all these?
