Catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs), needlestick (sharps) injuries and exposure to potentially deadly blood borne pathogens continue to be major issues facing all healthcare professionals. 

"B.Braun is passionately committed to combating these issues by providing safety-engineered IV therapy devices that offer patient protection against infection and optimum safety for clinicians in the workplace," said Tom Sutton, Vice President of Vascular Access Systems at B.Braun.

B.Braun will demonstrate the following safety-engineered IV therapy devices at booth (#16) during INS:   

  • Introcan Safety® IV Catheter, which is designed with innovative passive-safety features to help eliminate accidental needlestick injury - effortlessly. From insertion to catheter deployment to needle removal, clinicians are protected by a truly passive safety device that is activated automatically - no extra steps required and cannot be bypassed.
  • Introcan Safety® 3 Closed IV Catheter, B.Braun's latest innovation, which takes the same preferred passive safety-engineered needlestick protection found in Introcan Safety and adds additional protection from blood exposure. For safety and convenience, the Introcan Safety 3's unique multi-access blood control septum minimizes blood exposure during needle removal and each time the catheter hub is accessed.
  • B.Braun's WHIN® Safe Huber Needle, the clear choice for implantable port access, integrating the design features of two safety devices in a single huber needle - protecting clinicians from both needlestick injuries, and expelled blood and fluid. With an easy-to-dress design, the device includes a safety shield that covers the needle tip as it is withdrawn, for both clinician and patient safety.
  • CARESITE® Luer Access Device, the latest in B.Braun's needleless connector portfolio that offers a safe way to access IV lines without the use of a needle, which reduces the risk of accidental needlestick injuries. Input from clinicians provided the basis for the CARESITE design. The result is a device designed to help improve patient outcomes and clinician efficiency. CARESITE needleless connector with innovative positive displacement feature is designed to help reduce catheter occlusions while preventing healthcare workers from accidental needlestick injuries.
