Support Packs

Clinical Support Packs

We have built, compiled and delivered many training days over the years covering our full portfolio of vascular access devices (VADs).

To deliver this knowledge and experience to you in a way that is accessible at a time that suits you, we have created a series of tailored Clinical Support Packs.

The contents includes guidance on preparing for the procedure, insertion of the VAD, care and maintenance of the lines and access site plus a selection of clinical papers for further reference.
