Edwards Lifesciences’ PreSep Oligon Oximetry Catheter is an antimicrobial catheter with the added capability for monitoring central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2). It identifies occult tissue hypoxia with continuous ScvO2 and provides lasting broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection with Oligon technology, revealing occult tissue hypoxia that traditional vital signs can miss. ScvO2 is a sensitive and specific method for detecting blood loss. Oligon antimicrobial material releases silver ions (Ag ) from
an integrated polymer that will not wash away like antimicrobial coatings. The material also protects against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, as well as fungi and resistant microorganism strains.
