The Surflash™ feature is designed to confirm the entry of the catheter in the vein increasing the first puncture success rate1. The higher success rate increases significantly patient comfort due to less multiple punctures. Additionally less time and material is used and costs per puncture are reduced.
The Surflash™ I.V. Catheters are made out of special medical grade polyurethane which becomes very soft at body temperature ensuring patient comfort.
The Terumo needle point design in combination with well tapered and siliconised catheters are designed to increase user comfort and patient wellbeing as much as possible.
Additionally the Surflash™ I.V. Catheters are opaque and kink resistant further improving the patient comfort and safety.
When using the Surflash™ I.V. Catheters for venipuncture, follow
the same procedures and take the same safety precautions as when using our
Terumo’s conventional IV catheter models.
Note: The needle insertion angle in the illustrations differs from actual insertion angle.
