SAFETY BLOOD COLLECTION/INFUSION SETS
The Safety Blood Collection Set with integrated needle protection is an important contribution to avoiding needlestick injuries. After use, the safety mechanism is activated inside the patient’s vein. To do this, the wings of the set are held in place with the fingers of one hand. With the other hand, the slide is released by pushing together the pieces on the side. The slide is then pulled back. An audible “Click” indicates correct activation
