Catheter Tip Occlusion

When a Needle is removed from an Access Port, the volume of the needle tip (Vn) beneath the septum is removed from the fluid path.

This causes the same volume of blood (Vn) to be drawn back into the catheter tip.

The blood drawn into the catheter tip can coagulate, resulting in catheter tip blockage.
