Dartmouth Medical School Faculty Member and Anesthesiologist Invents Revolutionary Catheter System Designed to Increase Rate of Successful IV Insertions by 75 Percent

ce and engineering skill."

Although the PrecisionThread System must still go through additional refinement and regulatory approval by the FDA and foreign agencies, Wiley and Doyle are very encouraged by its laboratory performance to date and by the reaction of professionals who have been introduced to the PrecisionThread System.

"Everyone in medicine wants better outcomes for patients and for providers," said Doyle, a veteran medical products entrepreneur, who also has roots at Dartmouth. "One of the best aspects of Dr. Wiley's design is that we can use standard catheter materials, which means our product costs are very competitive. Even better, the design requires absolutely no additional staff training or changes in current IV practice, both of which can be barriers to new product entry."

According to Balch Hill, the PrecisionThread IV Catheter System achieves higher IV insertion success rates from two simple yet effective design features:

  • The PrecisionFlash orifice - which is setback from the needle tip so that blood flashback does not occur until both the needle and the surrounding cannula are in the target vessel
  • The PrecisionGlide needle tip design - which creates a smooth interface with the vessel backwall during insertion, reducing backwall trauma and punctures, while still featuring a super sharp "Triangle Tip" that facilitates easy skin surface penetration.

These revolutionary design features -- conceived by Dr. Wiley and enhanced by precise 3D engineering techniques -- combine to create an IV Catheter System that is materially easier to use, even for a novice, according to Balch Hill's Doyle.

"While we expect to see the biggest benefits in difficult pediatric and geriatric cases, and in field trauma settings, the data indicates that there will also be significant improvement in IV success rates in medical centers and clinics as well," Doyle said.
