Where are you ordering the smaller size Cavafix and Intracaths? The smallest I can find is 22g for intracath and 18g for cavafix. TIA

Hi Tara,

Thanks for your comment.

I checked in with our Inventory Specialist, and she mentioned that we stock the 18g Cavafix and the 22g Intracaths currently at our hospital. What is the particular size you are looking for?

Feel free to email me directly at

Thank you!

For a patient that stays for many days in hospital how long is it ok to leave in a sampling catheter?
