BD PosiFlush™ Pre Filled Saline Syringe

Positively Unique

BD PosiFlush™ is a range of ready-to-use sterile pre-filled flush syringes containing sodium chloride (NaCL) 0.9%, specifically designed to enhance best clinical practice.

Reducing the risk of cannula damage

All BD PosiFlush™ have a consistant 10mL syringe diameter to prevent cannula damage and assure compliance with PICC manufacturer recommendations.

Eliminating syringe induced blood reflux

BD PosiFlush™ eliminates syringe induced blood reflux, enhancing cannula maintenance protocol and extending the life of the cannula.

Reducing the risk of medication errors

Per the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA), all syringes, including flushes and Infusions, must be labelled immediately after preparation by the person who prepared them.* BD PosiFlush™ syringes have standardised labelling that contains all of the required medication preparation information.

Eliminating the risk of contamination

It has been found through documented studies that approximately 8% of manually prepared flush syringes are contaminated prior to administration due to breaks in aseptic technique. The use of commercially prepared BD PosiFlush™ can minimize this risk.

BD PosiFlush™ is designed to prevent solution from entering a non-sterile area of the syringe, eliminating the risk of contamination to patient.

Meeting priming volume recommendations

BD PosiFlush™ is available in a range of sizes to meet priming volume recommendations.


Creating time efficiencies and reduced costs

BD PosiFlush™ is a ready-to-use medical device which:

  • Creates time saving efficiencies
  • Leads to greater standardization and compliance to flushing practices
  • Reduces storage and disposal costs

Why BD PosiFlush™?

360° Tour

"From a patient care point of view, it is obviously vital to keep IV lines open. The fact the BD PosiFlush™ is so quick and simple to use has resulted in a marked improvement in flushing practise."

BD PosiFlush™ Pre-Filled Syringes

BD PosiFlush™ Syringes are designed to standardize and enhance best clinical practice, resulting in improved patient outcomes and greater clinical efficiency by:

  • Eliminating syringe induced blood reflux
  • Reducng the risk of cannula damage
  • Reducing the risk of medication errors
  • Eliminating the risk of contamination
  • Meeting priming volume recommendations

Eliminating syringe induced blood reflux

BD PosiFlush™ eliminates syringe induced blood reflux, enhancing cannula maintenance protocol and extending the life of the cannula.


Reducing the risk of cannula damage

All BD PosiFlush™ syringes have a consistant 10mL syringe diameter to prevent cannula damage and assure compliance with PICC manufacturer recommendations for flushing with a 10mL diameter syringe.


Reducing the Risk of Medication Errors

  • If not used immediately, clinician-prepared flush syringes should be labeled in order to reduce the possibility of errors caused by confusion between flush syringes and other drugs in syringes.
  • The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) 2005 standard MM.4.30 identifies a container as "any storage device such as a plastic bag, syringe, bottle or box..." It further states that basic labeling should include:
    • Drug name, strength, and amount
    • Expiration date, when not used within 24 hours
  • The Joint Commission International Center for Patient Safety, 2006 Critical Access Hospital and Hospital National Patient Safety Goals (3D) also reinforces the need for appropriate labeling of all medication containers and solutions, both on and off the sterile field.

During Preparation

It has been found through documented studies that approximately 8% of manually prepared flush syringes are contaminated prior to administration due to breaks in aseptic technique. The use of commercially prepared BD PosiFlush™ can minimize this risk.

During Administration

BD PosiFlush™ is designed to prevent solution from entering a non-sterile area of the syringe, eliminating the risk of contamination to patient.
