The PEAK™ Program difference

  • Icon of central and peripheral lines

    All lines, all the time

    Every IV site presents the potential for IV site complications. That is why we provide support and education for both central and peripheral lines, as well as for every brand of catheter.

  • Icon of IV care practices

    IV care expertise

    Most bloodstream infections (BSIs) happen after insertion.⁸ 3M understands that IV care cannot be an afterthought to insertion; it must be an area of passionate focus. This is why we have been collaborating with clinicians for over 35 years to find new ways to continue improving IV care practices.
