Cevec is a concept Central Venous Catheter (CVC) placed into a patient’s large vein. Our body responds pretty fast to medication given through central venous catheters, it can be a “lifesaver” method during emergencies. Unfortunately, placing catheter during emergency can be quiet challenging, especially in unpredictable environment and conditions. That’s why doctors seldom use them in emergencies. Cevec offers redesigned CVC that is easier to use, which hopefully can lead to a higher acceptance.
Cevec CVC System by Gabriel Mueller consists of three parts: the port, the syringe, and the catheter. These components have to be put together during the catheterization. The first step would be attaching the port to the desired point of puncture, the opening at the top displays the track of the needle. The sterile and adhesive patch at the bottom ensures that area stays clean and prevents dirt from falling onto the wound. The second step would be push the syringe through the tunnel of the port, and once blood enters into syringe, it means that the needle has approached the vein. Medical team can withdrawn the syringe and while pulling it back, the adapter tip and the adapter lid connect to the port, the guiding sleeve remains inside the vessel. Step three, place the catheter through stretchable guiding sleeve that acts as a cannula. The catheter now can be connected to the adapter lid at the top of the port with a screw-cap.
Doctors or medical rescue team can apply this lifesaving method easily during emergencies, reducing any necessary steps to a minimum for fast application.
