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
QLICKSMART BLADE NEEDLE SYSTEM
Qlicksmart BladeNeedleSYSTEM provides a simply safer way to remove and contain used scalpel blades and suture needles in sterile operating environments. BladeNeedleSYSTEM replaces the two-handed built-in blade remover of the existing needle counters with the world-first single-handed scalpel blade remover, which works perfectly safe.
Sharps injuries are a serious occupational hazard in healthcare settings. In operating rooms, scalpe
l blade injuries are the second most common type of sharps injuries, second only to suture needles. Use of a needle counter for safe containment of needles can minimize the riskof needle injury in the sterile field. However, built-in blade removers in existing needle counters are not safe, as they require two-handed activation and frequently malfunction. The sterile BladeNeedleSYSTEM enables single-handed removal and containment of used scalpel blades for safe disposal immediately after use, reducing the risk of scalpel injuries.
