The 2016 Infusion Therapy Standards recommend the use of an Engineered Stabilization Device (ESD) to actively secure PICC/Central catheters as inadequate stabilization can cause inadvertent dislodgement and complications requiring premature removal of the catheter. The standard also recommends avoiding the use of tape or sutures as they are not an effective alternative to an ESD.  Unlike passive tape-based securement devices, Clik-FIX features active mechanical securement of the catheter. Engineered to be stronger, Clik-FIX will help prevent catheter movement, tip migration, and dislodgement.
