Air embolism is the second most serious, preventable adverse hospital event and is a non-reimbursable, hospital-acquired condition.

Health Reporting and "Never Events," Andrew Miller, MD, MPH

ClearLine IV is the only FDA-cleared product that detects and removes air from IV lines continuously and automatically.

When air enters the circulatory system it can create an air embolism leading to shock and even death.


Prevention is the Best Treatment

  • Constant vigilance is required to ensure that air never enters your patient. Now the Clearline IV offers this constant vigilance automatically and reliably
  • Air can enter the IV line whenever a bag is not fully de-aired, is changed or emptied
  • Administration of Medications is another frequent source of air in IV lines
  • Diagnosis is difficult and relies on clinical suspicion
  • Current "solutions" like filters can clog and break

Now you can avoid long-term clinical complications, extended hospital stays and medical liability costs caused by air embolisms.
