A systematic, stepwise approach to managing postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) includes use of the BT-Cath® balloon tamponade catheter.
BT-Cath® is a soft silicone balloon tamponade catheter that provides direct pressure to control postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). BT-Cath® has a lumen allowing intrauterine blood drainage that allows timely confirmation of the tamponade effectiveness. The intrauterine drainage port is flush with the top of the inflated balloon (no tubing protruding from the balloon) allowing placement near the uterine fundus. Check-valves and other kit components are included to simplify and expedite the inflation process.
BT-Cath’s Design Benefits Include:
BT-CATH® WITH EASYFILL™ INFLATION SYSTEM
The BT-Cath® balloon tamponade catheter with EasyFill™ inflation system simplifies the process of balloon inflation during emergent postpartum hemorrhage.
The innovative EasyFill™ design allows for single-person inflation and includes a single syringe and a tubing set (saline bag not included in kit).
Fluid is drawn directly from the 500 mL saline bag, through the tubing and into the syringe. When the syringe is pushed, a special valve only allows fluid to flow into BT-Cath®. Alternating filled syringes is no longer necessary.
— Single-person, simplified operation.
— Allows inflation directly from the fluid bag.
— Creates a closed system.
