Protectiv®, FEP Polymer IV Catheter, Straight Hub, 22G x 1", Blue, 50/bx, 4 bx/cs

by Smiths Medical ASD, Inc.

The Protectiv® series of catheters pioneered the movement to innovative safety design that protect the healthcare worker from the risks associated with accidental needlestick injuries. Choice of catheter materials, FEP polymer or radiopaque polyurethane, and needlepoint design eases conversion to safety catheters. Unique V-point needle and advanced catheter tip provide for ultrasmooth insertions. Push-off tab facilitates one-handed threading; helps you keep both hands behind the needle until it is safely locked within the needle guard. Optically clear yet radiopaque Ocrilon® polyurethane is shown to reduce infusion-related phlebitis, allowing longer indwelling. A reassuring "click" confirms the needle is safely locked within the needle guard. Built-in needle guard securely encases the entire needle to reduce needlestick injuries.
