Wand at the ready

Access Scientific has received FDA clearance for its PICC Wand, which enables clinicians to insert a peelable sheath for peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) or midline catheter placement using the new accelerated Seldinger technique. The PICC Wand combines all components of the older modified Seldinger technique-the needle, guidewire, dilator, and sheath-into one device that also protects against accidental needle sticks, bleeding, contamination, guidewire embolism, and loss of cannulation. It also offers the fast-flash feature, which provides early detection of vessel entry.
