Positive pressure during the withdrawal of the needle

Thanks to its single-handed removal, PPS® CT allows to perform positive pressure helping to reduce catheter occlusion.

Catheter occlusion is the most common complication in the long term use of implantable ports (up to 21.5% of catheters may be occluded).

PPS ® CT allows easy application of positive pressure during needle withdrawal thereby reducing the incidence of reflux.

Catheter obstruction caused by blood coagulation at the distal end of the catheter

This caracteristic participates to reduce overall procedure costs associated with fibrinolytic drugs, personnel and facilty expenditures.

 

WITHDRAWAL STEPS
STEP 1 : Normal position for use (horizontal piston) before withdrawal STEP 2 : Preparation : lift the piston from the horizontal position position to the vertical position (perpendicular to the patient skin) while holding the square base with 2 fingers. STEP 3 : Using your thumb, lower the piston to put it in contact with the skin, inject sterile normal saline with the other hand and simultaneously lift the extractor (with an upwards movement) until there is a CLIC corresponding to the total locking of the needle.
This final operation eliminates any risk of accidental needlestick injury.

 

Prevention of needlestick injuryPPS retrait

  • No rebound effect at the withdrawal of the needle
  • No risk of contact with the body and the tip of the needle
  • Total protection up to discarding in sharps container
