Peripheral IV placement study


Intravenous products: report “University Hospitals Case Medical Center has been selected by Telesso Technologies Limited, a global healthcare company, as the second site to enroll patients in a head-to-head trial evaluating its FDA-approved guide wire-assisted peripheral IV catheter versus the industrys gold standard device for peripheral IV placement.

A peripheral vein is the most common site for insertion of a catheter for short-term diagnostic or therapeutic use. The catheter is placed into the peripheral vein in the arm, below the elbow and is typically passed up inside the vein to a length of 2-3 inches.
