The unique push-button shielding mechanism releases the spring and allows the needle and flash chamber to quickly retract into the safety barrel. The clinician maintains control of the process by deciding when to active the push-button shielding mechanism.
The BD Autoguard™ technology is the only safety-engineered catheter proven to demonstrate effective needlestick reduction. Results of an Autoguard Effectiveness Study conducted by Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York, NY, a 1,000-bed teaching hospital, clinically proved the BD Insyte Autoguard to reduce needlestick injuries by 95%.
The 20-, 22- and 24-gauge catheters feature the added benefit of the BD Instaflash™ needle technology, providing immediate visual confirmation of vessel entry along the catheter shaft.
