Visually inspecting lines and manually removing air is the current standard of care for removing air-in-line, this is tedious and time-consuming, resulting in inconsistent monitoring and avoidable, adverse outcomes. ClearLine IV detects and removes all air-in-line 25 micro-liters and larger (there is no limit as to how much air can be removed). This easy-to-use, hands-free device automates the needed vigilance for air-in-line removal, freeing up significant caregiver's time. It works with pumps, warmers and IV bag sets to deliver fluid safely to the patient.

AIR EMBOLISMS

According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), air embolisms are the second most common serious, preventable, adverse event. Air-in-line can enter the body through a vein and travel quickly to the brain, heart or lungs of pediatric patients and adults with a PFO.

Some complications include:

  • Mortality
  • Coma/encephalopathy
  • Paralysis
  • Vascular complications
  • Neurological complications
  • Stroke
  • Cardiac arrest

Indicated for use in the operating room (OR), post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) and intensive care settings. ClearLine IV automatically detects and removes air masses larger than 25 microliters in intravenous solutions to protect against air embolism. Clearline IV is placed below I.V. bags using gravity feed or pressure, and may be used with or without fluid warmers and pumps.
