The U-Tube Catheter Control Technology (U-Tube) standardizes and controls a typical bend in central (CVC) and peripherally (PICC) placed multi-lumen catheters. U-Tube directs the catheter ports away from a patient’s face, neck, and hair and by so doing, improves patient comfort and facilitates adherence to the CVC dressing. By standardizing the bend typical of internal jugular (IJ) CVCs, U-Tube also decreases the occurrence of kinking and accidental removal of the catheter, which may result in life-threatening emergencies for ICU patients. U-Tube is the only direction-reversing technology on the market
U-Tube is designed to fit catheter sizes 6 French, 7 French and 8.5 French.
