Confidently keep blood away from you 

Anytime you insert an IV catheter, you are at risk of a needlestick injury and blood exposure. When you have to apply digital pressure at needle removal, the risk of blood exposure increases. Your worries can be minimised with the BD Insyte Autoguard Pro Shielded IV Catheter with Blood Control Technology.

In a healthy human study, 98% of clinicians indicated they felt not at risk of blood exposure during insertion when using BD Insyte™ Autoguard™ BC IV Catheters.‡1

Be in control

BD Insyte Autoguard BC Pro Shielded IV Catheter with Blood Control, taller push tab, and three ridges technology is designed to enhance better control during catheter insertion and advancement. BD Instaflash Needle Technology (included on all 18-24-gauge catheters) is designed to help confirm immediate vessel entry at the point of insertion and improve first-stick success reducing painful hit-and-miss insertions.
