Parker Labs Gains CE Mark for UltraDrape Dressing
Parker Laboratories’ UltraDrape barrier and securement dressing was granted the CE Mark for use in ultrasound-guided peripheral intravenous (UGPIV) insertions.
The device addresses challenges that clinicians face when conducting UGPIV insertions, such as cross contamination, long procedure times, increased risk of infection and securement failure from inadequate gel removal. It also eliminates the need for additional dressings, gel and probe covers.
The product allows clinicians to apply ultrasound gel to a removable film layer that keeps the sterile puncture area dry and gel-free.
