MaxPlus just came out with an extension set with connected cap that is for high-pressure injections. It has a thin purple line down the side of the extension set to identify it as a power-injectable. I believe the parent company is Clinical Technology.
ICU Medical has high pressure tubing in micro and macro bore. Purple slide clamp is available on the microbore. We are qualifying a mid size bore as well. You can have Clave, MicroCLAVE or CLC2000 on any length of tubing.
Churchill Medical has a 7 in high pressure set with a purple slide clamp
Product code AMS-485-1
We are using it with #20 BD Insyte Autoguard placed in the AC for CT scan

[quote=Jackie Behm]What brand of peripheral IV catheter and extension set do you use when your patients need a CT with high pressure infusion?[/quote]
We are using B-D Nexvia's for CT Scans that require the high pressure, EX: angiostudies.
We have not had any problems with this particular peripheral device. B-D can get you hooked. There is a learning curve, but it is worth it. So many patients come in to ED for various complaints and guess what is ordered? CT!! Good luck
In another post, a Bard rep said the Bard Solo dfu does not make any reference to avoiding use of any type of negative pressure caps with the catheter, and that she is passing on this information verbally to clinicians which looks like it will be to mostly use positive pressure caps with the catheter. To avoid legal issues being referred to here, shouldn't this important clinical information be noted in the dfu to avoid this type of misunderstanding about the correct use of caps with this catheter?
