Our commitment to quality and innovation has once again been proven through the continued patronage of our Portugal customers and the trust bestowed upon us by Portugal hospitals. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Ruffy. L, KB's Region Manager, for her exceptional dedication and tireless efforts in making this expansion a reality.

Portugal hospitals have not only embraced our CVCs but have also placed their trust in our ability to provide the best medical solutions. This trust reflects our unwavering dedication to providing products of the highest quality to healthcare professionals. Unparalleled Benefits for Patients: What sets our CVCs apart is their ability to minimize trauma and irritation to the puncturing site.

What is a central venous catheter (CVC)?
A central venous catheter (CVC), also known as a central line (c-line), central venous line, or central venous access catheter, is a catheter placed into a large vein. It is a form of venous access. Placement of larger catheters in more centrally located veins is often needed in critically ill patients, or in those requiring prolonged intravenous therapies, for more reliable vascular access. These catheters are commonly placed in veins in the neck (internal jugular vein), chest (subclavian vein or axillary vein), groin (femoral vein), or through veins in the arms (also known as a PICC line, or peripherally inserted central catheters).
Central lines are used to administer medication or fluids that are unable to be taken by mouth or would harm a smaller peripheral vein, obtain blood tests (specifically the "central venous oxygen saturation"), administer fluid or blood products for large volume resuscitation, and measure central venous pressure. The catheters used are commonly 15–30 cm in length, made of silicone or polyurethane, and have single or multiple lumens for infusion. (Source and image from Wikipedia）
