Heparinization: To maintain patency of catheter between treatments, a heparin-lock must be created in each lumen of catheter. Concentration of heparin used should be determined by hospital protocol. If catheter is not going to be used, it is recommended that catheter be flushed and re-packed with heparin every 48-72 hours. MR Environment: This device presents no additional risks to the patient or other individuals during use with shielded magnetic resonance (MR) systems up to 3.0-Tesla, but may produce some MR imaging artifact in the area of the device. More detailed information regarding the use of this device in an MR environment is available upon request.
