FastLine by Papilio Devices is changing the way central lines are placed.
Central lines are large bore IVs that are placed in the neck or groin that allow for the rapid transfusion of blood, fluids, and special life saving medications. They are placed in case of emergency or in critically ill patients.
Each year, 5 million central lines are placed in the U.S. alone.
However, 1 in 10 central line procedures result in mechanical complications that harm the patient.
Current central line kits are bulky, not ergonomically designed, require two hands to maneuver, and have not fundamentally changed since the 1950s.
With FastLine, all of that changes.
