I would like to get some feedback from those of you who are using either the Sherlock or Navigator tip locator.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Some of the issues I'm interested in are as follows:
1. Which System
2. How long it took to learn
3. Accuracy or inaccuracy
4. Ease of device use
5. How much time to set up or add to PICC insertion prep time
6. Likes or dislikes of the system
From what I've read, the Navigator can be used with any PICC. The only items needed are the Navigator device and the sylets.
The Sherlock has pre-loaded PICCs that need to be used and need re-calibration of the system before re-advancing PICC.Â
Thanks in advance!
