http://hytag.co/168580Best Practices in Buttonhole Cannulation
The Best Practices in Buttonhole Cannulation video will discuss the constant site cannulation of native arterial-venous fistulas, also known as the buttonhole technique. The video will cover different types of hemodialysis access, introduce the benefits of constant site cannulation, review practices designed to prevent infection, discuss creating and cannulating buttonhole sites, and introduce the importance of monitoring the access.
ButtonHole® with SteriPick™ is designed for the safe and easy removal of the ButtonHole scab that forms when using the Buttonhole technique.
Risks: Some studies have found a correlation between the use of the buttonhole cannulation technique and an increased risk of infectious complications. Since pathogens could be introduced into the patient’s circulatory system through a buttonhole tunnel track, stringent protocols are required for needle insertion and skin preparation before cannulation and after removal of the needle.
Please note: this video is not intended to replace the ButtonHole Needle Instructions for Use and does not include all the information necessary to use the product safely and effectively. Product users should review and refer to the Instruction for Use for complete use information including all warnings and precautions.
