Indications for Use:
The Arrow Central Venous Access Product permits venous
access and catheter introduction to the central circulation.
Warnings and Precautions:*
1. Warning: Sterile, Single use: Do not reuse,
reprocess or resterilize. Reuse of device creates a
potential risk of serious injury and/or infection
which may lead to death.
pleural and mediastinal injuries,
inadvertent arterial puncture,
damage, hematoma, hemorrhage,
3. Warning: Do not apply excessive force in removing
guide wire, dilator or catheter. If withdrawal
cannot be easily accomplished, a chest x-ray should
be obtained and further consultation requested.
4. Warning: The practitioner must be aware of
potential air embolism associated with leaving open
needles, sheaths, or catheters in venous puncture
disconnects. To lessen the risk of disconnects, only
securely tightened Luer-Lock connections should
be used with this device. Follow hospital protocol
for all sheath and side port maintenance.
5. Warning: Hemostasis valve must be occluded at all
times to minimize the risk of air embolism or
hemorrhage. If catheter introduction is delayed, or
catheter is removed, temporarily cover valve
opening with sterile-gloved finger until catheter or
obturator is inserted. Use Arrow obturator, either
included with this product or sold separately, as
dummy catheter with hemostasis valve assembly.
This will ensure that leakage does not occur and
inner seal is protected from contamination.
6. Warning: Passage of the guide wire into the right
heart can cause dysrhythmias, right bundle branch
and a perforation of the vessel wall, atrial or
7. Warning: Practitioners must be aware of the
potential for entrapment of guide wire by any
implanted device in the circulatory system (ie. vena
cava filters, stents). Review patient's history before
catheterization procedure to assess for possible
implants. Care should be taken regarding the
length of spring-wire guide inserted.
recommended that if patient has a circulatory
system implant, catheter procedure be done under
direct visualization to minimize the risk of
8. Warning: Products containing sharps safety feature
components are designed to reduce the risk of
accidental needle and sharps related sticks. Care
must still be taken to minimize the risk of sharps
injury. Clinicians must adhere to state/federal
OSHA standards for blood borne pathogens when
starting, discontinuing, or maintaining a central
venous catheter to minimize the risk of exposure.
