A medical introducer device (150) includes a shaft (152) extending between a proximal end and a distal end. The shaft includes a lumen therein. A handle (154) is coupled to the proximal end of the shaft and includes a mode selector (164). The mode selector (164) is adapted to transition between a first mode and a second mode of the introducer device. The introducer device further includes a compressed fluid source (162). In the first mode, the compressed fluid source is fluidly coupled with the shaft so as to impart a negative pressure in at least a portion of the lumen. In the second mode, the compressed fluid source is fluidly coupled with the shaft so as to impart a positive pressure in the at least a portion of the lumen.
