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:
A soft balloon that is easy to insert, contours to the uterine wall, provides drainage near the fundus and does not require a surgical procedure to remove.
A uterine drainage port that is flush with the top of the inflated balloon.
A dual lumen catheter that allows infusion of saline to expand the balloon while providing uterine drainage to monitor the progression of hemostasis.
Durable silicone components with optimal biocompatibility and strength.
Two syringes to provide for uninterrupted infusion of saline for timely tamponade expansion.
A bag spike and stopcock equipped with check valves for efficient saline infusion without the need to repeatedly manipulate a stopcock.
