We have a number of special models Vascular Access Ports available.

  • The award winning Omegaport with omni-directional access, an extremely dense septum and a 'Clear Flow" reservoir. The OmegaPort offers an 180˚ access area - perpendicular access for bolus infusion, withdrawal and flushing and skin parallel for continuous infusion.
  • PhantomPort: the Low Profile light weight and tapered shape of the PhantomPort makes it a popular choice for cats and rabbits.
  • Shunting port; Vascular Access Ports with two outlet catheters
  • Dual lumen port: ideal for use when simultaneously infusion and withdrawal are required
  • Bone Port: offers easy access to the marrow.
  • IN-Line Vascular Access Port: straight through reservoir, skin parallel access. Download PDF Information here

When using Intisil or Hydrocoat catheters on Vascular Access Ports it is recommended to use the attachable (AC) version of the port to keep the benefit of the rounded tips.      

 

All our Vascular Access Ports can be supplied with:

  • Preattached catheter: the catheter length can only be trimmed from the distal tip. This catheter configuration is recommended for catheters smaller than 3 french
  • Attachable catheter: The catheter length can only be trimmed from the proximal tip. This catheter configuration is essential if the distal tip is rounded or specialized.

 

Ordering codes: Please use the ordering code for the chosen port combined with the code for the chosen catheter. Example: If you want to order a OmegaPort with Hydroocat 3 french, the order code will be: OmegaAC-3H.

  • Omega -port model
  • AC- for attachable catheter
  • 3H - for 3 french Hydrocoat

More information on implantation, maintenance and flushing of the ports can be found on our VAP maintenance page.

 

A noteworthy tip ... when accessing a Vascular Access Port, especially when withdrawing, be sure the needle tip hits the base of the port. You will hear a 'click' when the needle hits the base of the port that will confirm the needle eye/heel has cleared the septum. Maintain positive pressure as the natural tendency is to pull back on the needle when it hits the metal base. If the deflected tip/needle does not totally clear the septum, withdrawal will be difficault due to the occlusion caused by the "partially occluded needle eye".
