At one end the Transset™ HP filling-and injection set is attached to the syringe of a power injector and to reservoir of contrast media. At the other end it is attached to a Transflux™ HP Cardiac interventional patient-line with one-way valves and safety zones.
The Transflux™ HP Cardiac interventional contrast delivery system has been developed for delivering contrast media from a reservoir to the patient and with the need to only change the tubing in closest proximity to the patient. i.e. the CT patient line. The Transflux™ system incorporating a safety zone and a one-way valve in the patient line permits the delivery system and the vein to be flushed, the blood reflux to be controlled and the subsequent injection of contrast media.
The purpose of the system is to avoid the need to change power syringes for each patient procedure by eliminating the risk of contamination of the syringes. The benefit is a considerable reduction in cost and time without the risk of contamination and with the advantage of the management of blood reflux. When using a power injector and a filling and injecting set, it is only necessary to change the Transflux part of the contrast delivery system with each patient procedure.
The benefit is a considerable reduction in cost, time and waste.
The combination of one-way valves allows filling the syringes and automatically draining the contrast and saline to the Transflux™ patient-line using pressures up to 1200 psi.
This Transflux™ HP patient-line protects the Transset™ HP Filling & Injection set against contamination and consequently the Transset™ HP can be reused if the guidelines and instructions for use as described are followed.
These filling and injecting sets are suitable for reuse over a period of twelve consecutive hours.
