About BD PosiFlush™

BD offers a portfolio of saline pre-filled products to meet your clinical needs, including externally sterile packaged syringes for sterile field applications. The BD PosiFlush™ portfolio of pre-filled syringes provides reliable1,2, cost-effective alternatives compared to vial-based flushing.1,3 Furthermore, they are specifically designed to help reduce the risk of medication errors4,5, may help lower the risk of catheter damage1 and reduce disposal waste.

Support evidence based best practices

The BD PosiFlush™ Pre-Filled Syringe supports efforts to reduce the risk of medication errors6. It may also reduce the risk of catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) when compared to manually prepared flush syringes.3

Support vascular care

Both types, sterile fluid path syringes and externally sterile packaged syringes, come in three volumes (3 mL, 5 mL and 10 mL) of equal diameter (10 mL syringe). Because the BD PosiFlush 3-mL Syringe has the same diameter as a standard 10-mL syringe, it generates less pressure than smaller diameter syringes and reduces the risk of catheter damage.1

BD PosiFlush Prefilled Saline Syringes are sterilised using moist heat, which eliminates microorganisms.Tests are performed at the end of each production cycle to ensure each syringe is ready to be used for effective patient care.
