About Product

Octopus extension set quad lumen with 3 anti reflux valves and 4 Bionectors 1.5 x 2.5mm x 0.28ml 6cm PUR

Bionector Octopus extension sets

To support the MHRA Alert MDA/2010/073, Vygon offers a wide range of multi-lumen extension sets with integrated
anti-reflux valves (ARVs). These prevent the inadvertent backtracking and subsequent risk of drug overdose when running
multiple infusions at different rates.

Drug loss prevention
The Bionector Octopus range is produced with biocompatible PUR tubing to help prevent the risk of drug loss
which can occur with PVC tubing.(8) Central lines and syringe drivers do not contain PVC within the fluid pathway,
with Bionector you can be assured you’re not putting PVC into the patient’s IV circuit. Issues with PVC drug
interactions are supported by Bionector’s drug compatibility studies (Study Six).

No common dead space
Multi-lumen Octopus extension sets maintain separate fluid pathways right up to the catheter hub, preventing the
mixing of incompatible drugs within the extension set.

Reduced catheter manipulation
The range is equipped with a freely rotating male luer-locking collar to enable easier connection to the IV catheter’s
female luer, helping reduce mechanical phlebitis and associated complications.

Octopus 4 with Bionector is a polyurethane, transparent, supple multi-lumen extension tube for IV catheters (peripheral or central venous).

Octopus 4 code 842.414 is a 4-lumen extension tube with a clamp on each lumen, 4 Bionector and 3 non-return valves.
The extension tube without non-return valve (with blue clamp) allows blood sampling.
Length of tubes: 6cm / 6cm / 6cm / 6cm

Used for central venous catheter care, Octopus 3 has the following advantages:
– Provides closed, neelde-free access during syringe bolus dose administration and I.V. tubing change
– Eliminates the need to use a 3-way tap to run 2 or more simultaneous compatible solutions
– Eliminates the risk of blood spillage
– Eliminates the risk of air embolism
– PUR material (no PVC, no DEHP – no release of softeners)

Anti-return valves avoid reflux of fluids or drugs beyond the valve during multiple infusions.

Bionector can be disinfected with most of the antiseptic solutions (example: 70% alcohol). Avoid using antiseptic containing both alcohol and oxygenated water.
