Critical Care Solutions
When treating vulnerable patients, every product you use matters. Merit Medical offers a broad spectrum of tools designed for patients being treated in the critical care unit. Merit’s critical care technologies aim to reduce contaminant exposure, accurately monitor patient blood pressure, and decrease workplace injury, helping clinicians provide treatment that is safe, effective, and efficient.
Marquis® Series Stopcocks
Using the same state-of-the-art design that made Merit’s Manifold the industry standard, the Marquis Series Stopcock offers unsurpassed feel and ease-of-use.
Pressure Monitoring Tubing
Pressure monitoring tubing is non-expanding polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tubing with a rigid wall thickness which will ensure high quality wave forms with improved clarity. This line of tubing is designed to meet all procedural requirements.
Medallion® Sword Handle Syringes
Merit Medallion Syringes help take the guess work out of medication labeling. The Medallion syringe is designed to facilitate compliance with national safety goals that require labeling of all medications on and off the sterile field.
Pressure Infusor Bags™
Merit Medical’s Pressure Infusor Bags has a dual-pressure safety valve that switches between normal and over-pressure mode with a click of a button. Pressurization and deflation can be achieved with one hand. The blunt hook will not puncture the fluid bag and is secure in the event of pressure loss.
Fluid Administration Tubing
Merit offers three specific material configurations ranging from highly flexible polyurethane to clear PVC to meet your specific pressure needs. Merit’s fluid administration tubing configurations offer both a fixed male connector and a rotating adapter connector.
The RadialFLO is a first-step device in setting up a pressure monitoring and closed blood-sampling system. Engineered for peripheral access, the RadialFLO enables clinicians to gather hemodynamic data, helping to improve patient care. It supports other Merit critical care products, providing a complete solution for setting up a patient-centric monitoring system.
The Meritrans DTXPlus offers reliable precision, customized configurations, and a clear fluid path. Designed to complement a broad range of critical care products and accessories, the Meritrans creates a closed, in-line pressure monitoring and blood-sampling system, reducing your patients’ risk of contaminants from entering the blood stream.
The Safedraw closed in-line arterial sampling system reduces risk of infection or line contamination when compared to open (or stopcock) sampling devices. Its self-sealing, silicone septum facilitates easier blood sampling and superior clinical samples, while reducing the risk of iatrogenic anemia and cross contamination.
Designed by nurses for nurses, the DualCap is a disinfecting cap system for use on both the male luer connector at the end of the IV tubing and the needle-free valve. Offering rapid and ongoing protection, the DualCap disinfects in 30 seconds, providing a physical barrier to contamination for up to 7 days.*
Merit can provide you with percutaneous sheath introducers for the introduction of pulmonary artery catheters. Additionally, Merit has closed-loop, in-line injectate systems for improved accuracy of cardiac output measurement.
Utilizing PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) or FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene) material construction and incorporating a Floswitch®, Secalon-T is ideal for rapid, short-term insertion into central veins (or large peripheral vessels). The complete kit contains a pre-puncture stylus and stabilizing wing.
Careflow is a central venous catheter designed for catheterization via the Seldinger technique. The catheter is designed to reduce the risk of venous damage while improving catheter insertion via a tapered atraumatic catheter tip.
The Futura safety scalpel has a precision stainless steel blade that retracts with spring retraction technology to minimize the risk of accidental cuts. Its one-handed activation combines convenience with rapid response for any surgical procedure. Learn More >>
Our BackStop disposal systems have a seal-tight lid to prevent fluid leakage after a procedure, providing quick and safe fluid waste elimination. Learn More >>
Designed for quick and safe elimination of fluid wastes, the DugOut is made with particulate-free material and features a secondary compartment for storage of ancillary products or saline. Learn More >>
The ShortStop Temporary Sharps Holder was designed to prevent sharps injuries to both the clinician and the patient. The ShortStop, with its distinctive bullseye design, holds needles and scalpels in a protected environment before, during, and after procedures. Learn More >>
VALVED ONE-STEP™ CENTESIS CATHETERS
Valved One-Step Centesis Catheters are designed with an integrated self-sealing valve to minimize the risk of air entering the pleural space and to prevent fluid leakage during thoracentesis and paracentesis procedures. The catheter’s low profile, tapered tip, and smooth transitions decrease resistance for less patient discomfort.
THORACENTESIS & PARACENTESIS SET
The Thoracentesis and Paracentesis Set (TAPS) from Merit Medical combines all the necessary components for centesis procedures in a convenient all-in-one set. TAPS includes the low-profile Valved One-Step Centesis Catheter and the components needed for drainage of fluid and specimen collection for diagnostic purposes.
