The new Sonosite USGPIV Care Pathway Program helps providers make ultrasound-guided peripheral IV insertion a highly effective option for DVA and other patients
While nearly all patients require a peripheral IV (PIV) during their hospital stay, this procedure can be complicated when treating difficult venous access (DVA) patients experiencing dehydration, obesity, advanced age, or a history of intravenous drug abuse, and/or various chronic diseases.
The new Sonosite USGPIV Care Pathway Program can help providers master ultrasound-guided peripheral IV insertion with the goal to improve patient and staff experiences, clinical outcomes, and reduce the total cost of care.
- Help to minimize risk and complications of vascular access devices
- Lower costs by reducing direct labor and materials
- Limit time spent on multiple attempts and unnecessary line escalation
- Reduce patient pain, fear, anxiety and frustration often associated with IV insertion
- Increase or improve clinician satisfaction by building confidence in achieving first stick success
