BD today launched a new, advanced ultrasound system designed to help improve clinician efficiency when placing peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), central venous catheters, IV lines and other vascular access devices.

The SiteRite 9 Ultrasound System is an all-in-one system designed with a user-friendly experience on an updated 15.6-inch touch screen with enhanced image quality that provides catheter placement tools and technologies to support clinicians during the vascular access device insertion process. The system includes integrated visualization tools such as the Cue Needle Tracking System to provide nurses with continuous and real-time needle tracking, and the Sherlock 3CG+ Tip Confirmation System to ensure proper catheter tip navigation and location.

"Our latest innovation in ultrasound technology is designed to make vascular access care delivery easier and more efficient for clinicians — whether they've been on the job for years or are new to the field," said Eric Borin, worldwide president of Medication Delivery Solutions at BD. "By combining our decades of leadership in vascular access with voice-of-the-customer enhancements, we've developed a best-in-class solution to aid in insertion success on the first attempt and reduce the need for repeated needlesticks to deliver a better care experience for everyone involved."

SiteRite 9 also features smart, connected technology such as vessel assessment tools that automatically detect the vessel, then pair with vessel measurement tools to help clinicians select the appropriate catheter, so they can make an informed decision every time. Additional system capabilities include patient data look up with information capture, auto-filling capabilities and records transfer to help support clinician workflow.
