PICC Easy launched: Allowing the catheter to be trimmed when in position

Safety IV catheter

#IVTEAM #Intravenous products: Vygon (UK) Ltd has launched PICC Easy, an innovative new extension to the Lifecath family of mid to long-term IV therapy catheters. PICC Easy’s design enables the clinician to cut the catheter once the tip is in the correct position, which helps to improve the accuracy of catheter tip placement.

Thousands of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are placed each year. By helping to improve the catheter placement procedure PICC Easy contributes towards enhancing your Trust’s clinical practice and minimising vessel trauma. PICC Easy has been produced with the latest technologies and materials to ensure it meets today’s clinical requirements and insertion techniques.

The Nautilus® ECG tip location system from Vygon is the perfect partner for PICC Easy. Nautilus uses proven ECG tip confirmation technology to minimise the risks associated with blind catheter placement, such as thrombus which can be caused by incorrect tip positioning. It also eliminates unnecessary exposure to harmful radiation for both clinician and patient, whilst reducing the time before onset of therapy.

The combined use of PICC Easy and Nautilus gives the clinician the ability to place and cut the catheter in real-time, eliminating the need for X-ray, costly catheter repositioning and reducing therapy time and on-costs.
