Houston Medical Robotics: Automating Central Venous Access
More than five million central venous catheter lines are placed in the US each year, but the high-volume, invasive procedure has a troubling 2% to 26% procedural error rate, and can cause serious and expensive complications. Houston Medical Robotics has developed the Euclid Tier 1 Mini Access image-guided medical robotics vascular access platform to standardize, automate, and increase the safety of this critical procedure.
