Prevention is the Best Treatment

  • Constant vigilance is required to ensure that air never enters your patient. Now the Clearline IV offers this constant vigilance automatically and reliably
  • Air can enter the IV line whenever a bag is not fully de-aired, is changed or emptied
  • Administration of Medications is another frequent source of air in IV lines
  • Diagnosis is difficult and relies on clinical suspicion
  • Current "solutions" like filters can clog and break

Now you can avoid long-term clinical complications, extended hospital stays and medical liability costs caused by air embolisms.
