What to buy with Bard StatLock Device
How to use StatLock Catheter Securement Device?
Note: Always secure catheter to the StatLock device retainer before placing pad on the skin.
- Prepare the targeted securement site with alcohol or Chloraprep solution to degrease skin. Then apply skin protectant solution for enhanced adherence and skin protection. Allow to dry completely for 10 to 15 seconds.
- Wipe catheter with remaining skin protectant (so it is wet for insertion into the StatLock device retainer).
- Bring the StatLock device anchor pad into position. Stabilize the catheter between fingers and then double tug catheter to stretch-fit into the retainer.
- Close lid
- Peel and Place:
- Peel away the StatLock Universal Plus stabilization device paper backing one side at a time
- Place on the skin
- Open the StatLock device retainer by pressing tab and lifting lid
- Carefully lift catheter from the retainer
Note: Do not pull or force pad to remove
- First, lift the edge of anchor pad using 3 to 4 alcohol pads
- Then continue to stroke undersurface of the pad with alcohol to dissolve adhesive anchor pad away from the skin
Warnings and Precautions
- Do not use the StatLock device where loss of adherence could occur, such as with a confused patient, unattended access device, diaphoretic or non-adherent skin, or when the access device is not monitored daily.
- Observe universal blood and body fluid precautions and infection control procedures, during the StatLock Universal Plus stabilization device application and removal.
- Suture the StatLock stabilization device pad to skin if necessary or deemed necessary.
- Avoid the StatLock securement device contact with alcohol or acetone, both can weaken bonding of components and the StatLock device pad adherence.
- Minimize catheter manipulation during application and removal.
- Remove oil and moisturizer from targeted skin area.
- The StatLock catheter securement device pad adherence and catheter/tube position should be routinely inspected.
- Orient the StatLock stabilization device so arrows point toward the catheter tip.
- The device should be replaced every 7 days.
- A luer-lock connector must be used to secure venous and arterial catheters.
- Always apply the adhesive strip to central venous and arterial catheters at or near the insertion site when using a StatLock Universal Plus catheter stabilization device.
- This is a single-use device. Reuse/and or repackaging may create a risk of patient or user infection, compromise the structural integrity and/or essential material and design characteristics of the device, which may lead to device failure, and/or lead to injury, illness or death of the patent.
- Do not re-sterilize. The sterility of the single-use device is not guaranteed following re-sterilization because of an indeterminable degree of potential pyrogenic or microbial contamination which may lead to infection complications. Re-sterilization may compromise the structural integrity, essential material and/or design characteristics and may lead to an unpredictable loss of functionality and/or device failure.
- Known tape or adhesive allergies
- Known sensitivity to benzoin
