This review focuses on available prospective data comparing standard methods of catheter securement with a securement device. The data demonstrate that the device, specifically engineered for catheter securement, significantly reduces overall catheter-associated complications. This appears to be the result of improved securement and reduced catheter motion. These studies make the authors question their current practice of securing catheters with tape and suture when better alternatives are available.
