Hi, The Bard triple lumen HF cath has 1 18g that is power injectable and two 19g that are not. I noticed the withdraw of blood to check for patency is considerablely slower in the two 19g lumens.
Does anyone have problems with blood or TPN/lipids infusing in the smaller lumens. I think they are sluggish due to the 5 fr size and lower gravity rate.
