Getting to the Heart of the Matter

Sherlock 3CG* TCS Glowing Heart

Clinicians using Sherlock 3CG™ TCS for PICC placement have eliminated harmful radiation from confirmatory chest X-rays and reduced costs to their healthcare facilities.1

Enhanced user interface with updated functionality
Enhanced user interface with updated functionality
  • P-wave highlighting—Helps the clinician determine if the P-wave is present, identifiable, and consistent.
  • Max P-wave identification—Enhances the user interface by identifying max P-wave with stylet color and shape change, as well as ECG highlight and color change.


In addition, Sherlock 3CG™ Diamond TCS includes all of the great features of Sherlock 3CG™ TCS.

Benefits

Indicated for use as an alternative method

To chest X-ray and fluoroscopy for PICC tip placement confirmation in adult patients with a present, identifiable, and consistent P-wave

Immediate confirmation

Of PICC tip position at the bedside and immediate release of the PICC line

Decreases time

from initiation of insertion procedure to release for IV therapy as compared to “blind” catheter placements confirmed with chest X-ray2

Eliminates costs associated with confirmatory chest X-ray

and time previously spent waiting for X-ray confirmation readings2

Eliminates confirmatory chest X-ray exposure

To the patient and you

Testimonial

"Not only are we saving the time it takes to get the chest X-ray read, but more importantly, we’re decreasing the amount of radiation exposure to our patients."

Features

 

Sherlock 3CG™ Diamond TCS provides an enhanced user interface with updated functionality.

  • Simultaneous view of catheter tip tracking and ECG
    Integrates catheter tip tracking and ECG confirmation on the same display
  • Static ECG baseline
    Provides comparative ECG waveform for interpretation of P-wave changes and to assist in maximum P-wave identification
  • Dynamic ECG waveform
    Measures changes in P-wave morphology to allow you to position the catheter tip in proximity to the cavoatrial junction
  • Maintain sterile field
    Through-drape connection allows you to maintain a maximal barrier sterile field during placement. The probe and wireless remote allow you to maintain sterility while interfacing with Sherlock 3CG™ TCS
  • Tip confirmation documentation
    Allows for PICC tip location to be easily documented in a patient's chart or stored on the Sherlock 3CG™ TCS System
  • Guideline compliance
    Helps you comply with AVA and INS guidelines for proper PICC placement by helping to position the PICC tip in proximity to the cavoatrial junction

About

Clinical Study

Getting to the heart of the matter

Using X-ray to confirm PICC tip placement wastes clinical care time, exposes patients to harmful radiation, and delays medical therapy. The SHERLOCK 3CG™ Tip Confirmation System (TCS) gets to the heart of the matter by using an adult patient's cardiac electrical activity to position the tip of the PICC in close proximity to the cavoatrial junction (CAJ). Final tip location is confirmed by the nurse at the bedside, and infusion therapy can begin immediately without the need for a confirmatory chest x-ray.

Clinical Study Results

In a clinical study, 99.1% of 114 PICCs were placed at the CAJ or within +/- 1 cm using Bard tip confirmation technology.

Overview

Hardware Options

Sherlock 3CG™ TCS simplifies the PICC insertion process by combining PICC tip placement technology into select Site~Rite® Ultrasound systems.

The Site~Rite® 8 Ultrasound System is currently available with integrated Sherlock 3CG™ Diamond TCS.

The Site~Rite® 8 Ultrasound System with integrated Sherlock 3CG™ TCS is a "one-stop-shop" for PICC placements, allowing you these capabilities:

  • Evaluate and assess patient vasculature
  • Select and access the appropriate vessel
  • Use tip tracking technology to locate and navigate the catheter tip to the SVC
  • Use ECG technology to distinguish changes in P-wave amplitude and identify max P-wave
  • Confirm catheter tip placement at the CAJ without the need for a confirmatory chest X-ray
  • DICOM (on select systems) or printed documentation


Standalone

Sherlock 3CG™ Diamond TCS is also available as a separate standalone system for customers not using a Site~Rite® Ultrasound System with integrated Sherlock 3CG™ Diamond TCS. This device provides the same great tip tracking and ECG technologies of the integrated system but provides flexibility for use across multiple imaging platforms.
