    Wow! That's expensive! Thought it would be less expensive since it was much smaller.

    Wow! we do not charge for anything..we just show up and get the job done..US or not! .The gel caps are touchy on the Prevue so you sometimes have to put in a little NS to wet them then they work better. I do not need the needleguides and prefer not to use them. I like the idea of super users because it does take practice to get good at it. Make sure the nurses are well trained and you have solid guidelines in place and policies in place. Notice how BARD has plastered all over their videos on the product to follow institutional policy when using the product. Why do you think that is? it is still a very grey area with few standards so you better make sure you have them in place based on what is available. I will have to let you know how we progress and if they follow the policy.

    Asystole RN, How did your trial of Bard Powerglide Midlines turn out? Very curious as I work for a company as a vascular access RN and we are looking at the Powerglide as an option to cut cost vs traditional MST placed midlines. Tell me how you use them? With only the drapes in the kit or do you set up max barrier in addition? Currently we use Arrow all- inclusive max barrier mid and picc kits. Your comment above definitely outlined some limiting variables. Thanks in advance for your input!!

    We were never able to overcome the challenges inherent in the PowerGilde midlines and discontinued the trial. From what we hear the PowerGlides have been difficult to adopt across the board and they are actually redesigning it. It was a great idea though.

    While we had the PowerGlides we only used the small drape that came with the catheter, something that raised lots of eyebrows. I suspect that if we continued using the PowerGlide we would have adopted max barrier to be inline with our other practice, it is hard to justify why one midline needs max barrier and not the other, despite the whole "no-touch catheter." Obviously this would severely impact the cost benefit issue.

    There is a video on the bard site. I've only practiced on dummies but I like the concept.

    Where I work we are looking at getting powerglide to help with those patients who are in the gray area-difficult stick, multiple labs, long stay but no medications that warrant a PICC.

    I also what to know what other issues have occurred with the powergulide?
