Midline catheters are peripheral catheters for short and medium term IV treatments. It is preferably inserted into the veins of the upper arm. You only need to puncture the patient once and this catheter can last up to 29 days. (2)
Midline is the solution for all patients with poor venous access or patients who require peripheral access for more than 4 days.
Midline allows your patient to have a comfortable, safe and reliable catheter, avoiding painful or repeated venous punctures.(3)
