Provena™ Midline Catheter

Go Small. THINK BIG.

By combining advances in polyurethane material technology and manufacturing processes, BD offers a family of smaller-diameter* Modified Seldinger Technique (MST) midlines that maintain high performance for infusion therapy.

Features

It's time for a change!

Historically, the use of smaller-diameter midlines has meant reductions in flow rates and power-injection capabilities forcing clinicians to choose between a smaller catheter to vein ratio or infusion performance.

At BD, we believe that smaller-diameter* midlines can make a difference. Provena™ Midline Catheters occupy a smaller percentage of the vessel compared to Bard® PowerMidline Catheters of the same lumen configuration and yet maintain high performance for infusion therapy providing clinicians with a variety of options to meet their preferred catheter-to-vein ratio.


Smaller catheter*

  • Smaller-diameter MST midline that maintains high performance for infusion therapy
  • Created through a combination of engineering expertise and polyurethane material technology
  • Proprietary polyurethane material allows for thin catheter walls and large lumen sizes

Reverse taper

  • Provides kink resistance for multiple dressing orientation
  • Allows for gentle plugging of the insertion site

Power injectable
The catheter allows for injection of contrast media for CT scans at maximum flow rates:

  • 3 Fr single lumen: 6 mL/sec
  • 4 Fr dual lumen: 6 mL/sec

High-quality kit components
Available in Basic, Full and Max Barrier nursing configurations with MST components

Distally trimmable
A distally trimmable catheter allows for customization to each patient’s anatomy

Compatibility
Compatible with StatLock® Stabilization Devices

Clear identification
Unique hub design and catheter labeling further identify the catheter as a midline. This helps eliminate catheter confusion and promotes patient safety

Softening polyurethane
A polyurethane catheter that softens at body temperature

Kink resistance
The reverse taper is designed to gently plug the insertion site and provides kink resistance

No placement x-ray
No x-ray is required following the placement procedure
