Arrow® VPS Rhythm® Device with Optional TipTracker Technology

Take the guesswork out of PICC navigation and tip placement with the Arrow® VPS Rhythm® Device with optional TipTracker Technology. This easy-to-use system provides real-time visual navigation, tracing the catheter pathway on a color screen. Plus, it helps you confirm final tip placement using familiar ECG technology, helping to expedite patient therapy and eliminate the need for a confirmatory chest x-ray.1,2

  • See and adjust the location of the PICC path in real time, with the greatest range of visual tip tracking on the market
  • Designed to work with a broad range of PICC brands and sizes
  • TipTracker Stylet is also available preloaded in all lumen configurations of Arrow® PICCs
  • Confirm final tip placement using familiar ECG technology
  • With no calibration required, save time and frustration
  • Eliminate the need for confirmatory chest X-ray or fluoroscopy1,2


  • Clinical user captures external baseline ECG rhythm snapshot and the Device automatically switches to intravascular mode
  • T-piece and TipTracker Stylet use electromagnetic tracking to visualize the catheter pathway on the screen in real-time, enabling immediate catheter adjustments during navigation
  • As the tip of the catheter approaches the superior vena cava (SVC), ECG waveform changes
  • Clinical user captures intravascular ECG snapshots of negative P-wave deflection and maximum P-wave to ensure correct catheter placement
  • Tip Confirmation Checklist helps verify tip placement in lower 1/3 of SVC, near the CAJ, without requiring a chest X-ray or fluoroscopy1,2


Choose the catheter type that is right for your patient and clinical scenario. The Arrow® VPS Rhythm® Device, with optional TipTracker Technology, is compatible with a broad range of PICC brands and sizes (3 Fr. - 6 Fr. or inner lumen diameter of ≥ 0.018 in.).
