Rely on devices that are engineered for results.
Cook Medical provides tools that support an array of the CRBSI prevention methods that were discussed during AVA 2012.

Meet PICC placement guidelines with a complete bedside tray.
AVA and numerous other organizations recommend maximal sterile barrier technique for CRBSI prevention. Our Maximal Sterile Barrier Bedside Tray is designed to allow you to meet all of the latest PICC placement guidelines from start to finish.

Complete your process with Cook Spectrum® technology.
Combined with MSB technique, Cook Spectrum minocycline+rifampin catheters are five times more effective in reducing CRBSIs than process alone.1 They are the only PICCs on the market that allow you to meet CDC 1A recommendations for CRBSI prevention when process hasn’t helped you reach your goal.2  DOWNLOAD BROCHURE
