The Hummi Micro-Draw reduces overall blood/fluid volume movement significantly during UAC Sampling. Hummi’s unique design allows for sampling directly from inside the catheter hub through a split septum T-connector. This closed, needle-less system minimizes blood exposure and dramatically reduces alteration of cerebral blood flow, a known cause of neuro-impairment in very low birth weight babies. Blood clearance volumes are reduced approximately 70% with Umbilical Catheter use, and flush volumes are reduced up to 80% over current methods. Hummi provides additional clinical advantages over current methods of blood sampling from Umbilical Arterial Catheters.
