“We’ve used the CORTRAK System for over five years now. We’ve eliminated 93% of confirmatory X-rays and have reaped significant savings and patient safety benefits as a result of this. Also, our patients get fed sooner, which helps them move out of the ICU sooner. Our confidence in the system’s placement accuracy is well-founded—we’ve had no pneumothorax or lung placement events when using the CORTRAK System.”
