FEATURED CASE STUDY:

Long-term COVID patients benefit from Vygon’s Smartmidline at Scottish hospital

Introducing Vygon’s Smartmidline for long-term COVID patients at University Hospital Hairmyres is delivering continuous life-saving IV therapies without the pain and discomfort of repeat peripheral cannulation or the complication of arranging PICC placement.

The use of midlines within Hairmyres was already established for use in vascular patients.  During her redeployment to ICU throughout the pandemic, Amanda Byers, Fluid Nurse Specialist, along with Consultant Anaesthetists Dr Duncan Allen and Dr Grant Haldane, identified that midlines could provide benefits to long term Covid patients in the ICU who required ongoing IV access as a step down from central access.

Other benefits realised with the implementation of Smartmidline include the reduced hours spent by Medical staff trying to cannulate those with compromised vessels and also having to recannulate if the need for a PIVC was ongoing.
