"I am thrilled to have been accepted to speak at some of the medical
industry's best trade shows to share what I've learned throughout my
career, educate future leaders on the new advancements in vascular
access, as well as promote the successes of our customers and the
quality improvements offered to their patients," said Brown, whose
clinical background is in pediatrics. "Every opportunity we have to
speak to hospital leadership and the nurses on the frontlines, the
closer we are to keeping more people safe from preventable IV harm."

Infiltration studies are available, and the awareness of the issue is
growing, yet, it remains an underreported occurrence. ivWatch is
committed to education on the prevalence of IV complications,
identifying the risks of infiltration, assessment methods and how
ivWatch technology fits into clinical workflows to improve patient
safety and outcomes. The company also sponsors a website that focuses on
simplified IV information, myIV.com,
which provides resources to medical staff for their patients.
