More On Universal Plus Catheter Stabilization Device

Application Technique:

  • Prep:
    - Prepare the targeted securement site with alcohol or chloraprep solution to degrease skin. Then apply skin protectant solution for enhanced adherence and skin protection. Allow to dry completely for 10 to 15 seconds.
    - Wipe catheter with remaining skin protectant (so it is wet for insertion into the StatLock device retainer).
    Note: Always secure catheter to the StatLock device retainer before placing pad on the skin.
  • Press:
    - Bring the StatLock deivice anchor pad into position. Stabilize the catheter between fingers and then double tug catheter to stretch-fit into retainer.
    - Close lid.
  • Peel and Place:
    - Peel away the StatLock device paper backing one side at a time.
    - Place on skin

Removal Technique:

  • Disengage:
    - Open the StatLock device retainer by pressing tab and lifting lid.
    - Carefully lift catheter from retainer.
  • Dissolve:
    - First lift edge of anchor pad using 3 to 4 alcohol pads.
    - Then continue to stroke undersurface of pad with alcohol to dissolve adhesive anchor pad away from skin.
    Note: Do not pull or force pad to remove.

Warnings and Precautions:

  • Do not use the StatLock stabilization device where loss of adherence could occur, such as with a confused patient, unattended access device, diaphoretic or non-adherent skin, or when the access device is not monitored daily.
  • Observe universal blood and body fluid precautions and infection control procedures, during the StatLock stabilization device application and removal.
  • Suture the StatLock stabilization device pad to skin if necessary or deemed necessary.
  • Avoid the StatLock stabilization device contact with alcohol or acetone, both can weaken bonding of components and the StatLock stabilization device pad adherence.
  • Minimize catheter manipulation during StatLock stabilization device application and removal.
  • Remove oil and moisturizer from targeted skin area.
  • The StatLock stabilization device pad adherence and catheter/tube position should be routinely inspected.
  • Orient the StatLock stabilization device so arrows point toward the catheter tip.
  • The StatLock stabilization device should be replaced every 7 days.
  • A StatLock stabilization device luer-lock connector must be used to secure venous and arterial catheters.
  • Always apply the adhesive strip to central venous and arterial catheters at or near the insertion site when using a StatLock stabilization device.
  • This is a single-use device. Reuse/and or repackaging may create a risk of patient or user infection, compromise the structural integrity and/or essential material and design characteristics of the device, which may lead to device failure, and/or lead to injury, illness or death of the patent.
  • Do not re-sterilize. The sterility of the single-use device is not guaranteed following re-sterilization because of an indeterminable degree of potential pyrogenic or microbial contamination which may lead to infection complications. Re-sterilization may compromise the structural integrity, essential material and/or design characteristics and may lead to an unpredictable loss of functionality and/or device failure.
