Vygon launches Surfcath catheter
Vygon Group has introduced Surfcath, a catheter to be used for administering surfactant with the LISA method for preterm babies with respiratory distress syndrome.
The 20cm long, transparent, semi-rigid SurfCath catheter features a curved distal tip, improving manoeuvrability during the placement of the medical device, while eliminating the need for the commonly used Magill forceps. This is designed to ensure smoother application and lower risk of injuries in premature babies.
Vygon's Surfcath will be available from December in a 6Fr size, suitable for all neonates.
