For those who went to the INS meeting in Nashville, I am wondering what you thought of Access Scientific's The Wand.Â

I do communications work for Access Scientific, which makes The WAND. The PICC version of The WAND will first be available near the end of this year. The initial version, now available, is called the Micro Access WAND and is designed for interventional radiology and cath lab usage.
I was at INS and I think it's fair to say that those attendees who saw the PICC WAND demonstrated found it to be elegant and not cumbersome, a solution that simplifies and improves upon the modified Seldinger Technique. Dr. Steve Bierman, who developed StatLock, is CEO of Access Scientific. More info at www.the-wand.com.
