Our hospital has been trialing the protected Arrow PICC catheter for several months now. Before this we used BARD with sherlock 3cg TPS and we LOVED it. The decision to trial the Arrow PICC was made for our VAT and we did not have any say in it. We have encountered numerous problems with this catheter, for example: pt's bleeding post insertion despite pressure holds and stat seal, introducer peeling backwards, obtaining BBE but CXR reports tip to be deep in atrium and needs retracting 6-7cm, DVT's.....on and on. I am looking for words of advice from anybody that has or currently uses Arrow. If you work for Arrow or Teleflex, please do not respond. Thanks!
