A central venous catheter is a catheter which is placed into a patient’s large vein.
Since the body responds very quickly to medication given by central venous catheters, this type of catheterisation could be lifesaving during emergencies as it allows medication to be rapidly administered and absorbed by the patient. However, placing a catheter during emergencies can be challenging, and the procedure is not currently used by paramedics. Cevec responds to this issue by providing an easy to use catheter that can be safely administered in an emergency situation. It considers specific conditions such as unsteady surroundings, untrained users and time pressure and reduces the necessary steps and tools to a minimum, ensuring a fast application.
