Disclosed is a shield assembly for a catheter particularly useful for the protection of flow directed catheters used in the measurement of central venous pressure and pulmonary wedge pressure. The shield assembly includes front and rear hubs sized to permit movement of the catheter therethrough and a feed tube for interconnecting the front and rear hubs. A flexible sheath interconnects the two hubs. The sheath is substantially longer than the feed tube and is collapsible to permit interconnection of the hubs by the feed tube and is extendible to shield a substantial length of catheter.
