Several years ago there was an photo essay in the AVA journal about the tools used to trim catheters
The pictures were very telling--Scissors v Scalpel v Guillotine
I would like to revisit the discussion and survey the vascular access community on the subject
What type of tool are you using the cut your PICC and who is supplying the product to you?
Thank you in advance for your responses
