LIMERICK, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 16, 2012--Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical devices for critical care and surgery, announces the launch of a new multi-media advertising campaign for its ARROW ® brand. The “Never Settle” campaign applauds the dedication clinicians bring to their patients, while also conveying the company’s commitment of working towards making zero complications a reality. The latest branding efforts will support product launches and communications for the ARROW ® brand’s comprehensive portfolio of vascular access products – products that improve patient safety by protecting against infection, thrombosis and malposition. Many of these innovations, like ARROW ® VPS ® Vascular Positioning System ® and ARROW ® PICC with Chlorag+ard ® Technology, are featured at the annual Association for Vascular Access conference this week.
“Every day there are physicians and nurses who go beyond the call for their patients. They believe every patient should experience zero complications when treated with any vascular access product,” says Paul Molloy, President, Vascular Division of Teleflex Incorporated. “That’s why throughout our 35 year history, we have partnered with these clinicians to deliver vascular innovations that today protect against malposition, infection and thrombosis. Together, we are improving patient safety and overall care. That’s what ‘never settle’ is all about.” ARROW-branded novel vascular access products will be on display throughout the week at AVA. The company is sponsoring three separate symposia, including two CE-accredited ones that highlight some of these advancements: “Breakthrough Research in Vascular Access” and “PICC Tip Positioning Technology - Inadvertent Arterial Cannulation.” Long Beach, California-based advertising agency, JLOOP Health, helped develop the new campaign and refers all inquiries to Teleflex.
