The Powerwand XL® is an 8cm ultrasound guided, power injectable extended dwell catheter. It is delivered via the Accelerated Micro Seldinger Technique with no tearaway sheath, and secured with the GripLok® stabilisation device.
The Powerwand XL® represents the the third option for vascular access.
Where PICC’s and PIV’s will not or cannot work, think Powerwand XL®.
