The Safe In ™ Safety IV cannula with catheter without injection valve, without wings is a passive safety IV cannula meant to provide peripheral intravenous access with anti-needle-stick prevention feature that eliminates the risk of accidental needle-stick injury to the patient and/or healthcare professionals during use of this device.
The safety IV cannula I.V.SAFE™ is an active safety device meant to withdraw the needle semi-automatically by pressing a knob that sends it into a rigid chamber where it remains enclosed.
Fully enclosing the needle avoids:
- Needle-stick injuries, potentially responsible for disease transmission (Hepatitis, H.I.V, etc.).
- Needle breakage during disposal which can turn a tip-protected needle potentially harmful again.
- Direct contact with blood-stained needles which are only tip-protected.
