Guide to Peripheral Catheter Stabilization Devices

All vascular access devices should be stabilized to prevent complications such as device movement (or pistoning in the vessel) that may cause phlebitis, or cause the introduction of microorganisms into the vessel, and unintentional loss of venous access. The methods used to stabilize a device should not interfere with the assessment or monitoring of the site and should not impede vascular circulation or delivery of the prescribed therapy. The use of transparent membrane dressing and tape is not adequate for peripheral cannula securement. For peripheral catheter securement, consider several options:

1. Use of a peripheral catheter with an engineered stabilization device on the hub with a bordered polyurethane securement dressing
2. Use of a standard round hub peripheral catheter in combination with an adhesive ESD
3. Cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive, a medical sterile super-glue, and a standard transparent dressing
