ArterioSel: simple, safe and successful

ArterioSel: simple, safe and successful

ArterioSel provides a classic Seldinger technique for arterial cannulation with minimal blood loss and clear visualisation of arterial access.
Insertion of arterial lines into small vessels can be technically challenging, particularly if the patient is hypotensive or peripherally vasoconstricted.  The classic Seldinger technique has demonstrated a significantly higher rate of success than the direct threading method, and S.C. Beards et al.* recommend its use for arterial line insertion.

ArterioSel gives you more time to place your catheter under less pressure
The visualisation chamber allows you to clearly see when you have accessed the artery. Blood pulsates in the specially calibrated chamber while the blood control valve minimises the loss of blood during needle insertion.
Minimal blood loss means minimal exposure to blood for clinicians and therefore reduces potential exposure to blood-borne viruses such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV.

The same reliable catheter and technique without unnecessary blood loss
