Navigate with confidence using the ARROW® VPS G4™ Device. Our easy-to-follow symbols identify when the catheter tip is headed in the right direction as well as the wrong direction, helping you steer clear of potentially serious issues such as inadvertent arterial or azygous placement. Now you will know how close you are to the lower 1/3 of the SVC-CAJ so you can hit your mark with confidence.
The catheter is moving with the flow of blood, towards the heart.
The catheter could be advancing up the jugular, in the azygous vein, in an artery, laterally across the chest, or beyond the target (in the Right Atrium). It needs to be pulled back and redirected.
The catheter tip is possibly against a vessel wall, or retracted inside the catheter. It needs to be pulled back and redirected.
The catheter tip has arrived at the lower 1/3 of the SVC-CAJ.
