Tangent Medical Receives FDA Clearance for IV Catheter System

Tangent Medical has announced it has received FDA clearance for a new IV catheter system, according to a news release.


The NovaCath secure IV catheter system is a pre-assembled, closed system that integrates the catheter, high pressure extension tubing, multi-use flow control clamp and stabilization technology, according to the company.


"Up to 50 percent of all short-peripheral IV catheters develop complications that negatively impact catheter dwell times, clinical outcomes, patient safety and patient satisfaction," said Curtis Bloch, vice president of sales and marketing for Tangent Medical, in the release. "Our innovative, closed IV catheter design uniquely integrates advanced catheter stabilization, next generation tubing management, passive needle encapsulation and blood control on every short-peripheral IV start. Our research with clinicians has validated there is nothing like it in the market. FDA clearance will pave the way for us to advance the safety and efficacy of IV therapy."


Tangent Medical recently unveiled the NovaCath system at the Infusion Nurses Society conference in Las Vegas.


Tangent Medical is headquartered in Ann Arbor, Mich.
