  • Causa
    The reason for this action is due to the possibility that the catheter peel-away component hub tabs may prematurely detach when the practitioner begins to peel apart the sheath body from the catheter. the component tabs extend past the opening to the sheath, so even if both tabs break, there will be some length of the sheath that would protrude from the skin. therefore, embolus of the sheath should not occur. the defect is easy to recognise and the clinician would have the choice of either continuing with the split sheath or using a new one. although the issue does not pose a significant risk to the patient, it may cause a delay of treatment when placing the catheter.
