Vygon,a leading French Multinational,dealing in Catheters,launches its new range of Neonatal PICC (Peripherally inserted central catheters) Lines in the Indian market. This range has been designed to reduce trauma,morbidity and consequent infant mortality.

A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC line) is a form of intravenous access that can be used for a prolonged period of time (e.g. for long chemotherapy regimens,extended antibiotic therapy,or total parenteral nutrition).

It is an alternative to conventional intravenous access devices like the cannula. A cannula causes the baby a lot of trauma,blood loss & exposes him to greater risk of infections and other dangers. Vygon PICC lines can substantially reduce the trauma,morbidity and consequent infant mortality

Says Alan Martin,International Training Director Vygon France: “This illustrates Vygon’s commitment to enhance Neonatal Vascular Access care on a global basis. I have worked in India as a theater technician and I recognize the wealth of clinical talent in India. By bringing this range to India we wish to give the talented Indian Neonatologist with what we think is the best product today,resulting in improved care of the neonates.”

Vygon plans to expose neonatologist all over India to these products by conducting various workshops starting from Delhi NCR Neonatologists.
