Reduce Accidental Injuries and Infection Risk

Ensure that your workers have the safest medical supplies available. The Jelco ProtectIV safety IV catheter is proven to reduce accidental needle sticks and percutaneous blood exposure with a needle gasket that is designed to minimize the biohazard. The electropolished V-point needle provides an easy and ultra smooth insertion. The prominent push-off tab allows for easier one-handed threading. It’s designed with comfortable, easy-to-hold contoured housing, plus Safety IV Catheters from Smiths Medical grip for secure handling.

Its needle is encased and designed for protection by covering the needle throughout use. The needlepoint design is optically clear yet made of radiopaque OCRILON polyurethane material for better flashback visualization, longer indwelling, and reduced phlebitis. To reassure healthcare workers, the PROTECTIV Safety IV Catheter provides a “click” noise to signal the locking tab of the safety feature.

The Control Fit between the catheter and the nose of the safety holder contains the blood, and the healthcare professional can then detach and connect with the infusion tubing set. The porous insert is designed to provide a consistent flashback and creates a barrier to blood contact.

Accidental needlestick injuries are an ever present risk that healthcare workers are faced with due to improper safety features on their equipment. This lack of protection leads to poor infection control, and there are approximately 500,000 percutaneous exposures to blood annually (both in hospital and non-hospital settings throughout the United States). This daunting statistic is equal to 1,300 injuries a day or 57 per hour. Additionally, a CDC survey found that overall, percutaneous injuries are underreported by 58%, meaning there are many more injuries occurring daily.

Add the PROTECTIV Safety IV Catheter to your medical supplies to ensure your providers have the safest option for infection control and avoid accidental needlestick injuries.

The Smiths Medical PROTECTIV Safety IV Catheter is the trusted choice of healthcare professionals for safe IV catheterization. Note: this product can cause serious injury if misused and should only be used by medical professionals.
