  • Causa
    Arrow international, inc. ("arrow") is notifying customers that there is a low level of occurrence (<0.02%) of the lumen exit and lumen size on the extension line being misprinted on central venous catheters (cvcs). as an example, the distal lumen may be printed with the word 'medial 18 ga' instead of 'distal 16ga'. the misprint does not impact the use of the product including use of individual lumens for infusion, blood draws, etc. the colour coding of all hubs is correct and corresponds to the arrow system: white = proximal lumen; grey = medial lumen 1; blue = medial lumen 2; brown = distal lumen.
