About Product

Arteriosel Arterial Cannulation Access Device

Arteriosel is a transparent arterial puncture device to work alongside the Leadercath arterial catheter, for easier and more accurate arterial access.


Suitability and Use:

Used for invasive continuous arterial pressure measurement or to allow for repeated arterial blood sampling. Suitable for short-term therapy up to 30 days when clinically necessary.

Common insertion sites are the radial, brachial and femoral arteries. Less frequently used insertion sites include the ulnar, axillary, posterior tibial and dorsal pedis arteries.

Using the classic Seldinger technique makes arterial puncture easier particularly in hypotensive patients, or those with weak peripheral pulse, or when arteries are narrowed (atherosclerosis).


Specially designed for safe and reliable arterial puncture:

  • Specialised blood control valve reduces blood loss and minimises risk of blood exposure to clinicians
  • Transparent visualisation chamber for clinicians to clearly see blood pulsating in a contained extension tube, to confirm correct arterial placement.
  • Rotating chamber – allows clinicians to reposition the needle bevel so the visualisation chamber does not affect line of sight.


Contraindications to arterial catheterisation:

  • Active Raynaud’s syndrome,
  • Thromboangitis obliterans,
  • Abnormalities in vessel anatomy at the puncture site.
  • On a paralysed or traumatised arm
  • On the same side as an orthopaedic implant


Precautions for Arterial Catheterisation:

  • The using physician should be familiar with and undertake all standard precautions to avoid complications associated with the introduction and the use of Seldinger catheters and their accessories or components.
  • Observe strict aseptic technique according to established pro­tocol.
  • Single use. Re-use of this device may change its mecha­nical or biological features and may cause device failure, allergic reactions or bacterial infections.
  • Store the product at room temperature, away from light and humidity.
  • Flush catheter and accessories/components (if applicable) according to establi­shed protocol, to limit the risk of air embolism and detect potential defect of the device
  • Do not expose these devices to prolonged contact with alcohol, acetone or solvent-based disinfectants and sprays. They can weaken or damage devices material.
  • Allow the disinfectant to dry before dressing.
  • Do not clamp the catheter tube at any times as this will cause damage.
  • Do not use for power injection.
  • Never inject drugs via an arterial catheter.
