Summit Medical Group is a PICC certified healthcare provider. We are happy to offer groundbreaking ultrasound-guided Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) insertions, which uses Electrocardiogram (EKG) technology to expedite confirmation of tip placement. This new approach – widely considered the gold-standard in the vascular field – has been proven to maximize success rates and positive experiences for our patients.
Our providers use ultrasound guidance, reducing the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and increasing the success of placement. Fewer needle sticks mean a more comfortable experience for our patients.
Our team uses Maximum Barrier Precautions and strictly adheres to all safety standards according to Infusion Nursing Society, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Association for Vascular Access.
Immediate confirmation of proper PICC tip position reduces time to infusion therapy, and decreases clinician time spent on PICC tip repositioning.
PICC may be used for a year or more with proper care and maintenance
