SecurAcath® is a cost-effective catheter securement device that can decrease dislodgements, improve efficiency and eliminate suture needle sticks.

SecurAcath offers significant cost savings compared to adhesive stabilization devices and sutures. Sutures and adhesive devices often have many additional costs not immediately realized such as: catheter dislodgement, migration, line repositioning, maintenance time, infections and needle stick complications.
