Navilyst Medical has paired its PASV(R) (Pressure-Activated Safety Valve) Technology with its Xcela(R) Power Injectable Catheter Technology to create the Xcela PICC with PASV Valve Technology. The new peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) is designed to offer a high degree of safety, ease, and confidence in patient care.


The innovative design of the PASV Valve, coupled with the advanced material of the Xcela Power Injectable PICC, offers an advanced solution to vascular access needs. The PASV Valve Technology design automatically resists backflow, reducing blood reflux that could lead to catheter-related complications.


The PICC's simplified care and maintenance routine features alcohol-resistant material, clampless extension legs, the freedom to choose the institution's preferred needleless connector, and minimum weekly saline flush, which can limit complications and cost associated with heparin use.
