What is SecurAcath?

SecurAcath is a subcutaneous catheter securement system. The device utilizes a small anchor (securement feet) placed just beneath the skin at the catheter insertion site and attached to the catheter shaft.

SecurAcath offers a single application solution that stabilizes the catheter beneath the insertion site, throughout the entire catheter dwell time. This offers clinician confidence, ease and success for the needed care for venous catheters.

Why SecurAcath?

  • null

    Improve Patient Outcomes

    • Significantly Reduces Risk of CLABSI
      • University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) analyzed 7,779 patients over four years of Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI) data1
      • Analysis compared outcomes of patients whose PICCs were secured with a SecurAcath to those secured with an adhesive device1
      • Adhesive device had a 288% increase in risk of CLABSI compared to SecurAcath1
    • Dramatically Decreases Catheter Dislodgement
      • Catheter dislodgement defined as accidental removal or movement that resulted in loss of function
      • SecurAcath clinical data publications show very low dislodgement rates of 0–1.6%2-7
  • null

    Increase Quality of Care

    • Prevents Catheter Movement
      • Improved stability may promote healing at insertion site which acts as a natural barrier to infection
      • May reduce phlebitis, thrombosis and infection
    • Allows 360 Degree Site Cleaning While Secured
      • Excellent cleaning access around the entire insertion site
      • Catheter remains stable and secure during cleaning
      • Improved stability and cleaning may help reduce infections
  • null

    Reduce Total Cost of Patient Care

    •  Improves Efficiency – One SecurAcath secures for the life of the line
      • Catheter remains secure during dressing changes
      • Saves time during routine dressing changes
      • Dressing change can be done 41% faster8
    • Eliminates Costly Suture Needle Stick Risk
      • 385,000 sharps injuries to healthcare workers in the U.S. annually, over 2 million globally9
      • 22% are caused by suture needles10
      • Average cost to hospital of up to $3766 per exposure11
  • null

    The SecurAcath device is indicated for catheter securement to the access site by means of subcutaneous anchors in:

    • Short or long-term securement of percutaneous indwelling catheters for intravenous use
    • Short or long-term securement of percutaneous indwelling catheters for abscess/general drainage

    Instructions for Use

  • null

    Clinical Evidence & Resources

    • Read through the collection of SecurAcath publications regarding the use and effectiveness of the SecurAcath securement device:
    • Access the library of Clinician Resources including procedural and instructional videos, materials, and the eLearning platform.
    • Free On-Demand Webinars featuring some of the finest thought-leaders in healthcare specialties such as Infection Prevention and Vascular Access.
    • Here you will find a collection of issues we think acute caregivers want and need to know about. We understand the challenges faced by hospitals in the US today, and we want to deliver practical information that can be applied to your daily practice.

How Does SecurAcath Work?

  • Small, blunt, nitinol securement feet are placed just beneath skin right at the catheter insertion site
  • Cover is snapped onto base to affix to catheter shaft
  • No sutures or additional skin punctures are needed
  • No adhesives needed for securement
  • Remains in place for life of catheter
  • Works with venous access and general/abscess drainage catheters
