Safetywedge components: exclusive safety balloons act as a pressure relief valve to prevent over-pressurization of the balloon
Contamination shield: provides a protective barrier against contamination of the catheter during catheter insertion and manipulation
Thermistor connector: compatible with commonly used cardiac output computers, also used to monitor pulmonary artery blood temperature.
PA distal lumen: allows mixed venous blood sampling, and measurements of the pulmonary artery and pulmonary capillary wedge pressure.
Distal balloon: provides excellent symmetry and tip coverage for the safe flotation of the catheter and for pulmonary capillary wedge pressure measurements
CVP proximal or injectate lumen: carriers cardiac output injectate solution to the right atrium. Accommodates blood sampling, fluid and drug administration and when attached to a pressure transducer - monitor of right atrium pressure
