Catheter Tip Positioning Systems

ARROW® G4 Vascular Positioning System

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.

Green Arrow

Keep Going

The catheter is moving with the flow of blood, towards the heart.

Orange Circle

Do Not Enter

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.

Yellow Triangle

Damped Doppler Signal

The catheter tip is possibly against a vessel wall, or retracted inside the catheter. It needs to be pulled back and redirected.

Blue Bullseye

Correct Placement

The catheter tip has arrived at the lower 1/3 of the SVC-CAJ.
