Overview

The well-established BD Insyte™ Autoguard™ Shielded IV Catheter and BD Insyte-N™ Autoguard™ Shielded IV Catheter incorporates push button needle shielding technology that instantly retracts the needle, completely encasing it in the safety barrel, and helping reduce the risk of accidental needlestick injuries. It also features BD Instaflash™ Needle Technology for a greater likelihood of first attempt insertion success and clinically demonstrated BD Vialon™ Catheter Material.

Features and Benefits

Push-button Safety

Safety-engineered devices with automatic or semiautomatic (push-button needle shielding) are 10 times less likely to be associated with needlestick injuries.1*

First Attempt Insertion Success

BD Instaflash™ Needle Technology incorporates a notched needle, clinically demonstrated to significantly improve first-attempt insertion success, reducing painful hit-and-miss insertions2,3.

Longer Dwell Time and Lower Phlebitis

Proprietary BD Vialon™ Catheter Material softens, enabling longer dwell time and reducing the chance of phlebitis up to 69%4-6.
