TauroLock™

АНТИМИКРОБНА СИСТЕМА ЗА ЗАТВАРЯНЕ

Recommendations for catheter patency issues

 “2+1 protocol” as the standard method:

Lock the central venous catheter with TauroLock™-HEP500 twice a week (e.g. on Monday and Wednesday). Before the weekend (e.g. on Friday), use TauroLock™-U25.000 for a lock solution.

For patients experiencing poor patency and frequent flow problems (prophylactic use of TauroLock™-U25.000):

Lock the central venous catheter with TauroLock™-U25.000 three times a week.

Use of TauroLock™-U25.000 in thrombosed accesses:

Referring to the NFK-KDQI guideline, we recommend the following procedure:

  1. Try to aspirate the previously used lock solution (e.g. heparin) from the thrombosed catheter lumen.
  2. Use a small syringe (e.g. 3 mL syringe) to instill TauroLock™-U25.000 into the thrombosed lumen (sufficient volume to fill the catheter lumen).
  3. After 30 minutes, aspirate the lock solution from the catheter. Repeat this procedure up to three times according to need.

In non-native catheters:

Aspirate the lock solution (e.g. heparin) from the catheter lumen. Lock the catheter with TauroLock™-U25.000 three times a week for a period of two weeks. Subsequently, use TauroLock™-Hep500 as the standard lock solution.

Correct use of TauroLock™:

Please note the instructions for use with regard to the correct use of TauroLock™-Hep500 and the reconstitution of TauroLock™-U25.000.
