Continuous monitoring of glucose and lactate at the patient bed-side: increasing patient safety and comfort while freeing up staff-time.

Hotswap was challenged with the development of a new class III catheter with 5 lumens. Guide, sample, medical treatment and two for micro dialysis. The walls between the lumens in the 2,3mm catheter are down to 0,08 mm (80 micro). To connect a tube to each one of those 5 lumens without leakage between them, forced us to invent a complete new production method.

Truly continuous monitoring of blood glucose levels eliminates the risk for trend gaps and enables proactive glycemic control. Continuous lactate surveillance ensures visibility on lactate trends which apart from offering prognostic information will also aid the evaluation of ongoing therapy.
