presenter photoKamna Giare-Patel is Director of Research & Development for ARROW Vascular division at Teleflex. She leads team of engineers and scientists that are responsible for new product development, including their evolutionary catheter technologies. Kamna comes from distinct worlds of aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, and nursing. This diversity staged her to be more effective, practical, and passionate in designing new medical devices, focused on the needs of both clinicians and patients. Over the last 14 years, she and her teams have designed and commercialized various types of vascular catheters including PICCs, CVCs, and dialysis catheters. Recently, Kamna and her team commercialized the first and only catheter technology to have clearance for both antimicrobial and antithrombogenic protection in PICCs and JACCs.
