    Hi J

    We trialed it at PCH and have it available/stocked. Many of our patients request the Amanda Needle, even in the clinic, because they like it so much. It’s also been helpful in the ED, where they tend to have more issues with port access.

    I know this is a new product.  However, I am wondering if anyone has trialed or is using the Port Stabilizer by BARD access systems (AKA the “Amanda” Port Stabilizer).  Benefits?  Drawbacks?  Benefits with experienced staff vs. more inexperienced staff?
