Product Launch - PowerWand XL - Not all Midlines are Created Equal
Not all Midlines are Created Equal
Why? Because only one, the POWERWAND; is made of Chronoflex C. A robust POWERWAND midline program has been proven to reduce CLABSIs by reducing central line days.
This is because unnecessary central lines are avoided and necessary central lines are removed more quickly when POWERWANDs are present(1). Why? Because made with Chronoflex C, only the POWERWAND offers a catheter that is high-flow (130-160 ml/min), blood-drawable and kink-resistant.
With this knowledge, clinicians trust the POWERWAND to perform when they need it most.
