Cook gains FDA clearance for polyuethane Turbo-Flo PICC lines

By Liz White, UT staffBloomington, Indiana-Cook Inc. has announced that all of its polyurethane Turbo-Flo peripherally inserted central-venous catheters (PICCs) have received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration to be marketed for use with power injectors. These injectors are used for delivery of contrast media in CT (computer tomography) studies. The group’s Turbo-Flo PICC lines are one of the world’s most popular lines of catheters for intravenous use, and have been used for a long time in many other procedures, claims Cook. “For years, physicians and medical professionals have relied on Turbo-Flo PICC lines from Cook for venous pressure monitoring, blood sampling, and administering drugs and fluids,” said D.J. Sirota, senior product manager for Cook’s global Diagnostic and Interventional Products division, in a Cook release. “Now the proven advantages of our catheter design can also be used to help clinicians diagnose potentially debilitating and fatal conditions.”Hospitals can stock only one kind of PICC line, saving money and lowering inventory, Sirota added. “
