BD PosiFlush SP Prefilled Syringe

SP sterile fluid path

Contact Us

BD PosiFlush SP Prefilled Saline Syringes are designed to improve clinician efficiency and workflow by reducing the time involved in the manual preparation of saline syringes. They are intended to be used for the flushing of indwelling vascular access devices.

Catheter type and size, medication as well as some of the patient characteristics should determine the flush volume being used in order to properly maintain catheter patency and reduce medication interactions.2

Features and Benefits

Designed to improve patient outcomes³

BD Luer-Lok™ Tip Cap: Tighter seal for closure integrity helping prevent touch contamination

Standard 10 mL syringe diameter helps reduce the risk of cannula damages

Generates significantly lower pressure (PSI) compared to standard 3 mL syringes

Clear labelling helps reduce the risk of medication errors

Easily identifiable syringe contents; Bold print for clarity

Enhances clinical practice

  • Ready-to-administer medical device that does not require any further manipulation by the clinician
  • Eliminates the need for needles, glass vials and ampoules
  • Reduces PVC flushing time in comparison to manually prepared flush syringes¹, creating time savings and efficiency

Compact syringe profile reduces waste and costs

Selecting smaller size syringes (3 mL or 5 mL) for peripheral lines:

  • Reduces storage and disposal costs
  • Helps minimise environmental waste
  • 3-year shelf life 

Manufacturing quality for patient safety

Using a fully automated production process from start to finish limits interruptions in production due to lapses in the supply chain, and allows us to have control over all steps involved in making pre-filled syringes, such as:

  • Quality of raw material
  • Optimised syringe design for flushing
  • Shelf-life
  • Sterile saline solution
