The port with the contoured septum and spherical sludge-free chamber




contoured septum

swirl contour


The enlarged and radiused contour of the SwirlPort septum makes it easy to find while reducing skin necrosis.




spherical chamber

swirl chamber


The spherical chamber of the SwirlPort results in more complete port flushing, resulting in a 'cleaner' port that limits the formation of sludge and so minimizes infection and occlusion opportunities.
