Disclaimer: I am a rep for StatLock
Is there any evidence that has been published that supports the efficacy of any other product that claims to be a catheter stabilization device?
I ask because a hospital that currently uses tape to secure their IVs is interested in evaluating the StatLock but has a policy that they must evaluate a new product against two similar products. They also have a policy though that any product being evaluated must have evidence that supports the efficacy of the product to be evaluated. I have reached out to a couple of my competitors and asked this same question and have not had any luck obtaining evidence that was not produced by them. Maybe someone here can direct me toward a published study that shows, with statistical significance, evidence that supports the efficacy of any product other then StatLock. This is my last attempt to locate evidence of another product before informing this hospital that there isn't another product out there with evidence. The last thing I want to do is mislead them.
Thanks for your help,
