Neonatal air-eliminating filter set for 96-hour bacterial and endotoxin retentionThe Posidyne NEO Intravenous Filter Set features the 0.2 μm Posidyne NEO air-eliminating filter. The ultra low filter volume enables rapid delivery of bolus medication and minimum fluid hold-up. The 0.2 μm Posidyne membrane offers patient protection against particles, microbes, associated endotoxin, and entrained air.
- 0.2 μm Posidyne Membrane – Provides documented 96-hour bacterial and inadvertant bacteria-associated endotoxin retention for patient protection
- Slim, low-profile housing design – Provides low hold-up volume
- Surfactant-free hydrophilic Posidyne membrane – Permits easy priming
- Small, round housing – Easy to secure and comfortable for the patient
- Guideline compliance – Meets INS,1 NAVAN,2 ASPEN,3 and FDA4 guidelines
Indications for UseInadvertent contamination of intravenous infusions can have serious consequences:
- Particulate Contamination – Arises from a variety of sources, intrinsically in infusate and equipment, and extrinsically due to manipulations. Studies have demonstrated that particles may cause phlebitis on peripheral infusion lines and may have serious systemic effects,5 damaging the lung by irritation of endothelium and by deposition in microvasculature.6
- Entrained Air – Results from degassing of solutions, incomplete priming, or with disconnection. Entrained air is especially problematic on central lines, leading to air emboli.7
- Microbial Contamination – IV administration systems may become contaminated inadvertently due to manipulations.8 Some bacteria can grow rapidly in infusion fluids, increasing the infection risk.9,10
- Associated Endotoxin – Endotoxin has serious effects on the inflammatory, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and coagulation systems.11 It is released by Gram-negative bacteria and has been shown to be able to penetrate conventional IV filters.12 Only filters that retain associated endotoxin can be safely used for more than 24 hours.13
