Vascular Access Services
TridentCare brings the state-of-the-art technologies to patients wherever they call home. Most notable is our new 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.

Why Choose Trident for On-site PICC Insertion?
Our specialized Skilled Vascular RNs come to the patient, eliminating the need for hospital transport, potentially avoiding unnecessary expenses such as costly transportation and hospital fees.
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.
Immediate confirmation of proper PICC tip position at the bedside reduces time to infusion therapy and decreases clinician time spent on PICC tip repositioning.
Our clinicians utilize EKG Tip location technology—the newest practice to expedite confirmation of tip placement – which maximizes success rates and positive experiences for our patients. (Per the 2016 Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. www.ins1.org)
With just one quick call to our PICC service direct line, our team of specialists will schedule and process your order.
