The University awarded a contract for non-tunneled percutaneous central catheters.
Nontunneled percutaneous central catheters are sometimes called subclavian, percutaneous, acute-care, or short-term catheters. This type of catheter is usually inserted into the internal jugular or subclavian vein, with the catheter tip resting in the superior vena cava just above the right atrium.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) This type of catheter is usually inserted into the internal jugular or subclavian vein, with the catheter tip resting in the superior vena cava just above the right atrium.
