The main goal of the sutureless securement device is to stabilize and secure the catheter to prevent catheter movement, micropistoning and dislodgement; all which are associated with increased risk of bloodstream infection, complications and premature catheter removal. For many years, there was only 1 catheter securement device available. More recently, newer securement devices have emerged. Deciding whether to implement new technology or continue to utilize existing methods is a hard decision.
