access catheter / central venous / quintuple-lumen
Area of the body:
Number of lumen:
This multi-faceted catheter offers a five-in-one solution for blood sampling, administrating drugs and fluids and for venous pressure monitoring. This is achieved by five separate, non-communicating vascular access lumens which are incorporated into a single catheter body. This five-in-one device prevents multiple venipunctures having to be performed on a patient as well as reducing the need for multiple stopcock configurations. The benefits of using this single-lumen catheter serve to increase the patient's safety.
Another safety benefit is that all Cook Spectrum catheters are impregnated with minocycline and rifampin. These have been proven to minimize catheter-related bacteremia during use and the risk of bacterial colonization of the catheter.
