The SafeSheath Ultra family of introducers combines a tear-away sheath and hemostatic valve to reduce back bleeding and the possibility of air embolism.

The new SafeSheath Ultra Micro is specially designed to improve safety during lead delivery. Utilizing a 21G needle and 0.018” guidewire, the SafeSheath Ultra Micro introducer is designed for micro venous access. Its smaller dilator tip enables a smooth transition to the micro guidewire, while the longer low profile sheath tip facilitates lower insertion forces. The Micro’s 7 French, 13cm long sheath provides access into the subclavian vein in the standard manner.

The easy splitting, break-away hub greatly simplifies sheath removal after lead or catheter placement. The extruded score line construction ensures a clean, even peel every time. A new locking dilator connector assures a firm attachment to the sheath.

The design of the low profile luer activated side port reduces interference with other devices, providing a convenient means of aspirating and flushing the introducer, as well contrast and fluid administration.

Finally, the silicone oil-free construction means the Ultra will not affect the sensing and pacing characteristics of today’s pacemaker leads.

The SafeSheath® Ultra Micro is designed specifically for micro venous access and lead delivery, the 21G needle, 0.018” guidewire, and smaller dilator tip reduces the risk of pneumothorax, while the longer, low profile sheath tip facilitates lower insertion forces.
