Is there any one using both of these types of PICCs? I've been troubled by DVTs Â since switching to POWER. Used to use ARROW and never had these problems, but again, it wasn't there new POWER injectable PICCs.
Anyway, my thoughts on the stiffness of the POWER PICCs have definitely been a problem, but BARD carries a POWER Groshong PICC. To me, this seems like the perfect marriage of POWER yet softness:)
The only problem is that it only comes in a 5FR single. I'm in the process of going thru Products committee for approval to have these POWER Groshongs available as an option.
Â Anyone have any feedback or thoughts on this?
