Sheathing
The Kapsus is stored unsheathed. Prior to starting the procedure, the distal portion of the handle is extended, sheathing the housing. The device is now ready for introduction.

SVC Anchor
Once the tip is located in the Right Atrium with the available imaging equipment (e.g. fluoroscopy), the SVC anchor can be unsheathed and anchored in the Superior Vena Cava. This is accomplished by sliding back the distal portion of the handle until the SVC anchor can be seen with the imaging equipment.

Deploying the Housing
Upon anchoring the device in the Superior Vena Cava, the rest of the housing can be deployed by sliding back the distal portion of the handle all the way into its initial position.

Priming the Needle
Once the device is completely anchored, a 5 O’clock orientation is achieved by rotating the device, using the Orientation Indicator as a reference. Then, the physician uses their left thumb to prime the needle with the Priming Wheel. This action may be used for tenting the Fossa Ovalis as well as finding the desired angle of attack for puncture.

Safety Lock
While maintaining the position of the Priming Wheel, the Safety lock is removed with the right hand. The blue section is then held in place for safety; the device is now ready for the physician to perform the puncture.

Puncture
To engage the needle, the blue section is pushed until the grey stop. This is a safety measure preventing the needle from traveling too far into the Left Atrium.

Guidewire Insertion
Next, the guidewire is inserted through the luer at the proximal end of the device.

Device Retrieval
Finally, the device is retrieved. To do this, the physician holds the distal section of the handle in place while pulling back on the blue portion, until the housing is completely sheathed. Continuing to pull from the blue section, the physician may release the distal section, and pull the remainder of the device from the patient.
