Indications For Use
PowerHohn® catheters are indicated for short or long term access to the central venous system. They are designed for administering I.V. fluids, blood products, drugs and parenteral nutrition solutions, as well as blood withdrawal and power injection of contrast media. The maximum recommended infusion rate is 5ml/sec. The maximum pressure of power injectors used with the PowerHohn® catheter may not exceed 300psi.
Warning: Failure to warm contrast media to body temperature or ensure patency of the catheter prior to power injection may result in catheter failure.
Warning: Do not exceed the maximum flow rate of 5ml/sec. Exceeding the maximum flow rate of 5ml/sec may result in catheter failure and/or catheter tip displacement.
Warning: Power injector machine pressure limiting feature may not prevent over pressurization of an occluded catheter.
