Did you know more than 90% of hospitalized patients receive a vascular access device (VAD) and 50% of measured hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) are VAD related per pay-for-performance? Catheter-related infection is the most costly of HACs, requiring longer patient stays and an average $46,000 per patient in non-reimbursed expense.

Fortunately, now hospitals can draw the line. With ARROW® VADs featuring antithrombogenic and/or antimicrobial technology, you can help improve patient outcomes, lower costs, improve efciency and reduce vascular access-related complications.
