SecurAcath: Improving catheter safety

Posted: - 29th October 2019

Across the region, we have seen 11 hospitals use 26,370 units of SecurAcath, thereby reducing the need for catheters to be replaced, saving time and money.

SecurAcath is another product being made available through the NHS Innovation and Technology Payment programme. It is a device that holds catheters in place without the need for sutures or adhesives. Patients in hospital may experience a range of complications when peripherally inserted central catheters are moved or dislodged.
