ClearGuard HD caps have been proven in major studies to prevent central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) in hemodialysis catheter hubs.
ASN Kidney Week, the world's largest nephrology meeting, brings together over 13,000 kidney professionals from across the globe to learn about the latest advances in the nephrology field and serves as a major forum for disseminating advances in clinical practice, patient care and basic, clinical and translational research. Results from the second major clinical trial demonstrating a reduction of ~70% in CLABSIs using ClearGuard HD caps were published earlier this year in the Society's Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN). The conference takes place this year at the San Diego Convention Center October 23-28, 2018. Pursuit Vascular will be exhibiting at booth #1922 during exhibition hours.
The NRAA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of renal administrators in the United States. The meeting features leading experts in the kidney care community and dialysis business world to gain insights on the state of the dialysis industry as well as how leading experts are improving patient care. Pursuit Vascular will be participating in the exhibits at booth #211 during exhibition hours.
