New Ultrasound System Facilitates Catheter and IV Placement


Offering a variety of integrated visualization tools, the SiteRite 9 Ultrasound System reportedly enables the insertion of vascular access devices regardless of user experience level.

For clinicians placing central venous catheters, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) and IV lines, BD has launched the SiteRite™ 9 Ultrasound System.

In addition to a 15.6-inch touch screen with enhanced image quality, the SiteRite 9 Ultrasound System enables real-time needle monitoring with the Cue™ Needle Tracking System and guided catheter tip navigation with the Sherlock 3CG+™ Tip Confirmation System, according to BD.

The company added that the system also facilitates appropriate catheter selection with a combination of automated vessel assessment tools and vessel measurement capability.

"Our latest innovation in ultrasound technology is designed to make vascular access care delivery easier and more efficient for clinicians — whether they've been on the job for years or are new to the field," said Eric Borin, the worldwide president of Medication Delivery Solutions at BD. " … We've developed a best-in-class solution to aid in insertion success on the first attempt and reduce the need for repeated needlesticks to deliver a better care experience for everyone involved."
