Ultrathane® with AQ® Hydrophilic Coating
Used for abscess drainage
Large bore catheter facilitates drainage of thick fluids that will not adequately drain through smaller devices
Catheter can be inserted via a direct stick with the included 18 gauge trocar needle or using an over-the-wire (Seldinger) technique
Ultrathane material has been found safe for use with ethyl alcohol
The AQ hydrophilic coating, when activated, becomes very lubricious, reducing the coefficient of friction during insertion.
