Streamline®

Streamline is the new standard in blood tubing featuring a simple, airless system.

Discover the benefits of Streamline

How is Streamline different than a conventional blood tubing set?

Arterial pressure PODLearn More
Airless arterial pressure POD
  • Streamline's POD technology replaces conventional bloodline drip chambers and transmits arterial pressure to the hemodialysis machine without blood-air contact
  • Elimination of blood-air interface may reduce the risk of clotting1,2 which may
    • lower heparin needs as compared to a conventional bloodline
    • decrease the number of blood-side machine alarms
  • No need for external transducer protectors
  • Streamline eliminates the need for conventional transducer protectors because the POD isolates the patient’s blood from the hemodialysis machine
Locksite® needleless accessLearn More
LockSite® needleless access
  • Needleless access port which provides ready access to the arterial line and saline line without the use of sharps
  • Replaces conventional bloodline injection ports to help prevent accidental needlestick
Simplifed Tubing Design Learn More
Simplified tubing design
  • Optimized tubing length reduces extracorporeal volume and saline requirements
  • Reduces biohazard waste

Airless Venous Vortex Chamber Learn More
Venous vortex chamber
  • Streamline's venous chamber is run without an air gap and is designed so that blood flows in a circular, "vortex" manner to reduce stagnation, foaming, splashing, and microbubble formation
Slim venous filter Learn More
Slim venous filter
  • Designed to reduce clotting by reducing blood to surface contact
Venous Pressure POD Learn More
Airless venous pressure POD
  • Streamline's POD technology replaces conventional bloodline drip chambers and transmits venous pressure to the hemodialysis machine without blood-air contact

Streamline may provide the following treatment cost reductions:
Cost reduction category Streamline
Reduced heparin usage Streamline is designed to eliminate blood-air interface, which may result in less clotting1,2
Reduced dialyzer size Streamline is designed to lower bloodline arterial pressures, which may enable higher blood flow rates in comparison to conventional bloodlines, while maintaining or improving Kt/V.
Reduced dialysate usage Streamline is designed to lower bloodline arterial pressures, which may enable higher blood flow rates in comparison to conventional bloodlines, while maintaining or improving Kt/V.
Reduced saline usage Streamline has a lower set-volume
Elimination of external transducer protectors Streamline uses POD technology, which is designed to isolate the patient’s blood from the hemodialysis machine
Facility-specific treatment cost reductions with Streamline
