may result in severe patient injury or death.
Do not alter the SLIC
Procedure must be performed by trained personnel well
versed in anatomical landmarks, safe technique, and
potential complications.
Warning: Do not place the catheter into or allow it to
remain in the right atrium or right ventricle (refer to

Cardiac Tamponade: It has been documented by
many authors that placement of indwelling catheters
in the right atrium is a dangerous practice
secondary to pericardial effusion is uncommon, there
is a high mortality rate associated with it.
Practitioners placing central venous catheters must be
aware of this potentially fatal complication before
advancing the catheter too far relative to patient size.
No particular route or catheter type is exempt from
this potentially fatal complication.

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
2. Warning: The practitioner must be aware of
potential air embolism problems associated with
leaving open needles, sheaths, or catheters in venous
puncture sites or as a consequence of inadvertent
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 to guard
against air embolism.
3. Warning:
complications associated with central vein catheters
vessel wall, atrial or ventricular perforation, pleural
and mediastinal injuries, air embolism, catheter
laceration, bacteremia, septicemia, thrombosis,
inadvertent arterial puncture, nerve damage,
hematoma, hemorrhage, and dysrhythmias.
4. Warning: Hemostasis valve/side port assembly to
connection must be secured and routinely examined
to minimize the risk of disconnection and possible
air embolism, hemorrhage, or exsanguination.
5. Warning: Due to the risk of exposure to HIV
bloodborne pathogens, health care workers should
routinely use universal blood and body fluid
precautions in the care of all patients.
