Feature and Benefits

Engineered to navigate tortuous vessel anatomy for atraumatic delivery, our patented AccuTip™ guidewire is designed to minimize the need for unnecessary needle advancement that may lead to vessel damage and complications.

Features

  1. AccuTip™ Nitinol Guidewire
    Coiled tip guidewire engineered to navigate tortuous vessel anatomy for atraumatic delivery. Designed to minimize the need for unnecessary needle advancement that may lead to vessel damage and complications.1
  2. Echogenic Guidewire Design
    Echogenicity of the guidewire is designed to aid in insertion when using ultrasound devices.
  3. BD Instaflash™ Needle Technology
    Incorporates a notched needle, which clinically demonstrated improved first-attempt insertion success, reducing painful hit-and-miss insertions.*2,3
  4. AccuFlash™ Secondary Flash Chamber
    Secondary blood flash chamber designed to give clinicians an additional indicator of successful cannulation/vascular access.
  5. Power Injectable
    Indicated for power injection with contrast media up to 6 mL/sec at 300 psi.
  6. Blood Control Valve
    Designed to reduce blood flow into the catheter hub after insertion until a secure luer connection is made.**
  7. Improved Flow Actuator
    Redesigned to improve flushability of catheter hub.#
  8. Needlestick Safety
    Built-in needlestick safety spring retracts at the push of a button.^
  9. Textured Grip Housing
    Designed for device control during placement.
  10. Colored Guidewire Slider
    Designed for visibility and identification of the gauge size.
* Compared to a non-notched needle
** Blood leakage from the hub may occur unless a complete luer connection is made within 10 seconds.
# As compared to AccuCath™ Intravascular Catheter.  
^ If needle retraction does not occur, depress white button again. If the needle does not retract on the second attempt, carefully withdraw the needle and guidewire and contact BD.
