BD Nexiva closed IV catheter system

Preserving sites and protecting veins

The BD Nexiva IV catheter, shown to preserve sites for longer and designed to protect patients by reducing the risk of complications and restarts. 1,2*

BD IV technologies can help provide significantly better care and experience for your patients, efficiently and cost effectively. 1

BD Vialon biomaterial

Proprietary BD Vialon biomaterial softens up to 70% in the vein, enabling longer dwell times 3† and reducing the chance of mechanical phlebitis by up to 50%. 3†

BD Instaflash needle technology

Provides quick blood visualization that may help improve insertion success and therefore reduce insertion attempts.

Built-in stabilization platform

Reduces dislodgement by 84% and complies with the Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice and CDC guidelines for catheter stabilization. 4,5

Pre-attached extension set

Shown to significantly reduce blood exposure during insertion compared to an open system 2* and aligns with INS guidelines. 4

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Catheter stabilization is recognized as an intervention to decrease the risk for phlebitis, catheter migration and dislodgement and may be advantageous in preventing catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs).3

Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice

Recommend limiting the use of add-on devices to reduce the potential for contamination, additional manipulation, and disconnection.5

Increased clinician safety

98% reduced blood exposure during insertion due to the BD Nexiva IV catheter preassembled system.2*

Increased catheter stabilization

Clinically demonstrated to reduce accidental dislodgement,2‡ meeting Infusion Nursing Society standards4 and CDC guidelines5 for catheter stabilization.

Reduced rate of complications

In a clinical study, results demonstrated a significant reduction in the rate of phlebitis (grade 2 or higher), PIVC-related complications, and infiltration in the closed system versus the open system group.1

Preserves sites

In compliance with industry best practices, BD Nexiva IV catheter is the only all-in-one PIVC system shown to dwell longer and preserve sites vs open system PIVCs.1,2||
