Overview

The BD SmartSite™ Bag addresses the need for empty IV bags, which occurs in approximately one out of every four preparations.

The SmartSite™ Needle-free Valve enables BD SmartSite™ Bags to be filled with IV solution, disinfected and accessed again to add medications. Free of needles, our system helps to reduce the risk of needlestick injuries–the leading source of occupational infections among healthcare workers.

BD SmartSiteBag Instructions for Use

Before every access

  • Swab the top of the needle-free valve with 70% isopropyl alcohol for 2-5seconds.
  • Let the valve dry for approximately 30 seconds. The dry time depends on the temperature, humidity and ventilation of the area.

  • Fill the BD SmartSite™ Bag with medications or dilutant through the needle-free valve.
  • The needle-free valve may be repeatedly accessed according to the IFU.
  • Mix contents per facility protocols.

Administration

To administer the contents of the BD SmartSite™ Bag through the spike port:

Clinicians first remove the twist-off spike port cap to expose the pierceable septum of the spike port. An IV administration set with a spike is then used to spike the bag and access the contents for administration to a patient.
