In this program, we define and outline the specific goals for device selection and then review the eight factors to consider for each patient prior to the final selection of a vascular access device.

Intentional VAD Selection

In this program, we review the eight factors to consider prior the the selection of a vascular access device, including: prescribed therapy, duration of therapy, physical assessment, client health history, risk Assessment,client support system and resources, device availability and client preference. Evaluating these factors leads to selection of the vascular access device most likely to last throughout duration of therapy while preserving patient vasculature for future use.
