I have been asked to try these two products can anyone provide any comments? thanks
I use MedComp products and have limited to no negitive comments. If you wish further comments concerning this product... I will be happy to do so in a more secure avenue. Just let me know how I might contact you directly
We've been using the Medcomp Pro-PICC for about 8 months, and have been very happy with them. Very comparable to other brands that we've trialed. No complaints so far. I've been enjoying the Cook Echogenic needle that comes in the kit. But I am waiting for them to release the "guillotene" line trimmer. I just dont think that any scissor can trim a PICC evenly.

You are correct about the scissors and trimming PICCs!! The study by Janet Pettit showed how bad scissors actually are. Lynn

We have used them exclusively for about 3 years and have minimal or no problems. Their piccs are CT injectable and come in 4S, 5D and 6T sizes. Kit components are best in class - nitonol wire, super sharp needles, 3 PREFILLED salines, 3 PAIRS of gloves - everything to meet SHEA guidelines. They offered us all this at the best price too - not cheap, but best price. I would recommend them - but try them all if your hospital wants you too.
With the Medcomp PICC Lines are you using any tip location system??? Is anyone using Bard ECG 3??
