3 Summary of NICE recommendations

Both the NICE guidance on SecurAcath and this adoption support resource specifically relate to using SecurAcath for securing peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs).

  • Evidence supports the case for adopting SecurAcath to secure PICCs with an anticipated medium- to long-term dwell time.

  • Cost modelling shows that the SecurAcath leads to cost savings if the PICC remains in place for 15 days or longer.
