The problem

Avoidable IV replacements are costly to patients, caregivers, and the health care system3

The cost

Up to $980,000 per year in an average 200 bed hospital from IV restarts alone*#3

The problem

Preanalytical specimen errors lead to sample rejection and redraws, delaying time to treatment

The cost

Up to $2.4M in a 200 bed hospital with a $200M operating expense+5

The problem

Needlestick injuries are associated with bloodborne pathogen exposure and infection and can require costly interventions

Up to $4,838 for post blood exposure management costs per reported exposure8

*Costs are estimated for a 200 bed U.S. hospital. #Annual estimate for 100,000 catheters, with a 35% failure rate and a $28 average cost per IV insertion. +Math: $200M operating expense x 1.2% = $2.4M

    MY PIVO™ STORY

    Read what patients and clinicians are saying

    The PIVO™ Pro Needle-free Blood Collection Device is helping to reduce unneccesary and repeat needlesticks in the hospital. This helps to elevate clinical outcomes, improve workflow, and create a better experience for both clinicians and patients.

    "I'm kind of a hard poke, and this saves the anxiety and stress around the draw."

    Ryan is what his medical care team calls a 'frequent flyer.' After a serious automobile accident as a teenager resulted in the amputation of his left leg below the knee, he has had to endure years of surgeries. "A lot of times, people look at that as a pretty significant disability, but it hasn't slowed me down," Ryan said.

    Now, as a father to three rambunctious boys, Ryan still stays active--skiing, hunting and going on long hikes. But years of hospitalization and vascular access problems make blood draws one of the challenging parts of his hospital stays. "I'm kind of a hard poke to start with, and you can see my arms and hands are bruised--and that is from the last couple of days."

    Ryan was the first patient at his hospital to receive a needle-free blood draw with the PIVO™ Needle-free Blood Collection Device. "I was a little concerned that I might be able to feel it, but I didn't feel it at all--it was phenomenal."

    For him, and two of three patients who are difficult venous access, technologies like the PIVO™ Device can make hospital stays a little less challenging and "save the anxiety and stress around hospital blood draws."

     

    “The patient didn't experience any discomfort...he didn't even know what I was doing."

    Victoria has been a pediatric nurse for 10 years. “Pediatric nursing was always the way to go for me,” she said.

    The floor Victoria works on at the hospital has a mix of some very sick patients and some more stable patients who can leave the hospital after only a few days. No matter what the patient’s condition, one procedure that remains tough across pediatric patients is blood draws. 

    “Sometimes the parents fear for their child, makes their child more anxious,” she said. “Holding them [the children] down is the worst part and is usually what scares the parents initially –and then you add the needle on top of that. Kids hate needles.”

    Using the PIVO™ Needle-free Blood Collection Device for the first time on 5-year-old patient Wyatt “was super easy.”  She was surprised with how well it went—both from a practitioner perspective and equally for her patient. Wyatt was distracted with a game on his iPad® throughout the entire draw, and his mother was able to relax too. “The patient didn’t experience any discomfort,” she said. “He didn’t even know what I was doing.”

    “It’s truly a life-changing game changer for patients like me.”

    Traci was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis as a child. Since then, she has experienced repeated vascular access for blood draws and IVs causing her arms, wrists and hands to become painful and bruised. Over the course of two, 30-day hospital stays, her veins collapsed and clinicians had to go under her knuckles to access her veins. This made blood draws so painful that she was prescribed a powerful pain medication to make them more bearable and had to have a central venous catheter (CVC) placed in her neck, which ended up getting clogged and becoming unusable. 

    When she was recently admitted to the hospital with a pulmonary embolism, she experienced the PIVO™ Needle-free Blood Collection Device for the first time. “The only way I can describe this product is to say it’s truly a life-changing game changer for patients like me,” Traci said. “It helped eliminate needlestick pain and the need for additional medication and unnecessary line escalations.”

    In addition to making blood draws virtually pain free, this device makes it possible for patients to experience what’s called a “one-stick hospital stay vision," by using an IV catheter line already in place instead of having to be poked and prodded countless times for blood collection.

    “Many patients like me experience so much trauma, pain and anxiety from past needlestick experiences, they’ll avoid seeking medical care if they think it means having blood drawn,” Traci said. “The PIVO™ Device can be truly life-changing, because I believe it can make patients who have to receive frequent blood draws far less anxious and hesitant when having to seek medical care.”

    The PIVO™ Pro Needle-free Blood Collection Device advances a flexible flow tube through the IV catheter to access optimal blood draw conditions, overcoming traditional hurdles to collect high-quality, reliable blood samples.11

    The PIVO™ Pro Blood Collection Device has been shown in clinical and healthy human studies to provide reliable, high-quality blood draws from peripheral IV catheter lines.*,2 In addition to providing high-quality blood draws with low rates of hemolysis, the PIVO™ Pro Blood Collection Device may have a positive impact on patient experience by reducing repetitive needlesticks and redraws that may result in care delays.12

    The BD Peripheral Line Draw Solution is fully compatible with the BD portfolio of blood collection products and peripheral IV catheters, including BD Vacutainer® Luer-Lok™ Access Device, BD Vacutainer® Blood Collection Tubes, Nexiva™ Closed Catheter System with NearPortTM IV Access, AccuCath Ace™ Intravascular Catheter as well as the BD Insyte™ Autoguard™ Safety IV Catheter and BD Cathena™ Safety IV Catheter portfolio of products.

    The PIVO™ Pro  Blood Collection Device provides compassionate care that alleviates fear and anxiety associated with repetitive needlesticks by reducing IV replacement2,13 and using existing access for blood draws11 with minimal disruption to a patient's sleep and healing process.14-16

    Compared with venipuncture, patients who received daily phlebotomy collections rated their overall experience a 9.1 out of 10 using the PIVO™ Blood Collection Device.13

    The BD Peripheral Line Draw Solution includes the PIVO™ Pro Blood Collection Device and Nexiva™ Closed IV Catheter System with NearPort™ IV Access. Together these products help to reduce the number of sticks associated with venipuncture and IV replacement2 helping to preserve vessel health for future access.4 Reliable peripheral line draws may also provide an alternative to the reliance and associated risks of central line draws.19

    Streamline clinical workflow with a innovative line draw solution that optimizes IV performance to effectively perform reliable blood draws and reduce IV replacements, empowering clinician confidence at each patient encounter.2,5

    Performing a needle-free blood draw and reducing the number of sticks associated with sample recollections and IV replacements reduces the potential risk of an accidental needlestick injury.2

    It preserves your patient’s vessel health4 by maximizing first stick success,18 minimizing IV replacements, and using existing access for blood draws.2,11

    Needle phobia terminology differs throughout literature and includes terms that are often used interchangeably: scared of needles, fear of needles, needle fear, Blood-Injection Injury (BII) phobia, fear of injections, and needle anxiety.

    If your patients have needle phobia, it could lead to avoidance behavior. This includes exacerbated avoidance of treatment, blood donations, and vaccinations – all which can negatively impact patient care.20,21

    The most common device-related approach for addressing needle phobia is utilizing innovations that include smaller/thinner needles, followed by needle-free options.22,23

    *Clinical studies were done on previous generations of the PIVO™ Blood Collection Device and Nexiva™ Catheter System. PIVO™ Pro and Nexiva™ with NearPort IV Access are the next generations of their respective product families.
