These latex–free, DEHP/PVC free syringes are available in a variety of sizes.
Product DetailsThe B. Braun Introcan Safety IV Catheter was crafted with patient safety at top of mind. This product’s innovative design implements a passive safety technology that prevents the user from bypassing it. The safety features are automatic and do not require user activation.
Recent studies have shown that up to 21% of safety IV catheters were not activated. When auditing disposal containers, it was found that the safety devices were only activated on 83% of sample devices. Leaving the safety activation up to the user allows for accidental needlestick injuries, since it can either be delayed or never employed at all. The Introcan Safety IV’s passive safety technology is better for both patients and healthcare professionals involved, because safety is not an option, it’s automatic.
Introcan Safety Means Patient Comfort
B. Braun is the leading IV catheter manufacturer with a passive safety device designed to aid in patient comfort. Its universal bevel needle has a wider choice of insertion angles to make insertion more comfortable for patients, and the unique geometry of the universal bevel design gives a back-cut incision without high angle insertion (allowing for more flexibility to access difficult veins). The back-cut incision of the safety needle creates a highly flexible pathway designed to allow for easier catheter insertion with less tearing and faster healing when compared with the typical “front” or lancet cut.
The double flashback technology on this easy-to-use safety IV catheter delivers first stick success with confident needle and catheter placement every time. The locking bevel indicator easily identifies bevel-up orientation and adds stability during catheter advancement. A winged design is also available for easy securement. The truly passive safety shield prevents needle reinsertion, which can cause an embolism when catheter shearing occurs. In case of unsuccessful IV start, remove the stylet first to activate the safety mechanism, then remove the catheter from the patient.
Introcan Safety IV Catheter Options
Compared to other safety IV catheters, you can expect half the plastic content (which significantly reduces medical waste and critical storage space). The syringes are available in a variety of sizes:
• 14g x 1.25”
• 16g x 1.25”
• 18g x 1.25”
• 20g x 1.25”
• 22g x 1”
• 24g x .75”
These products are also latex-free, DEHP-free and PVC-free. Catheters are available in polyurethane for softer, more comfortable, in-dwelling performance or FEP polymer with firmer construction for arterial access and special procedures. Pricing may vary depending on type and size of safety needle.
The B. Braun Introcan Safety IV Catheter also allows for quick product identification. Each box label carries an illustration and product description of the safety needle inside so that the contents can be verified before opening. Gauge identification is also made easy with color coded labels for quick and easy recognition. The packages are easy to open with peel packaging clearly identified with a green B. Braun Medical Inc. stripe.
Relying on clinicians to activate safety features is outdated and leads to accidental errors. The B. Braun Introcan Safety IV Catheter provides a safe, easy-to-use alternative to make patient comfort number one and prevent unnecessary needlestick injuries.
