Overview

The well-established BD Insyte™ Autoguard™ shielded IV catheter incorporates advanced safety features including a push button that instantly retracts the needle, helping reduce the risk of accidental needlestick injuries. It also features notched needle technology that lets you easily visualize blood return along the catheter shaft, which can enhance care for fragile vessels or vessels without venous tone.
