Removal

Step 1

  • Grip the HOLD tab with thumb and finger of one hand to stabilize device
  • Pry upward at edge of LIFT tab with the other hand to release cover from base

Step 2

  • Completely detach cover from base

Step 3

  • Remove the catheter – do not use excessive force
  • Hold pressure at site to achieve hemostasis
  • If the insertion site is “crusty” or scabbed, use sterile gauze and saline to soak the site for a few minutes. The tissue will soften and removal will be easier
