Safety Huber Needle

Huber needles are used to administer chemotherapy, antibiotics, and TPN through an implanted IV port.  These Needles may be left in the port for many days at a time.  It can be difficult to de-access, or extract the needle safely.  The difficulty of pulling the needle out often creates a recoil action with the clinician often getting a needle stuck into the stabilizing hand. A Safety Huber needle retracts or shields the needle upon removal from the implanted port preventing the potential of recoil resulting in an accidental needlestick.
K-Shield Advantage™ Port Access Infusion Needle

The K-Shield Advantage Port Access Infusion Needle has the following features:

  • One step activation – simple, safe and easy to use for clinicians.
  • Tactile and audible click upon safety activation – assures you that the needle is safely secured.

  • Low profile and small body size – making dressing simple and device less visible under patient’s clothing.

  • Small transparent skin plate – allows a clear view of the infusion site.

  • Non-coring siliconized needle – minimizes drag on the skin during access and de-access.

  • Non-DEHP fluipd path – offers a safe, DEHP-free fluid path.

  • Latex free – for patients, practitioners and end-users

K-Shield Advantage™ Port Access Infusion Needle

Kawasumi brings you K-Shield AdvantageTM, a totally integrated device for optimal non-coring Huber needle stick protection. K-Shield complies with all OSHA standards and has unmatched advantages.

It’s been carefully designed with user needs in mind. For example, it’s clinician friendly and easy to use, especially when activating the safety mechanism. The audible click can be heard clearly to acknowledge the needle is locked and enclosed during activation. Kawasumi’s K-Shield port access infusion sets are available in both straight tubing and needleless “Y” site offerings. And, pinch clamps are color coded according to needle gauge. 

Of course, you’re concerned about patient comfort. Kawasumi has addressed this issue with a lubricated needle which reduces patient discomfort when port is accessed as well upon needle removal.

Also, K-Shield has one of the lowest profiles in the industry, making dressings simple and efficient. This also improves patient comfort during long infusion times. The ridges on the bottom plate enable skin to breath, further improving patient comfort.

The exclusive design of the GRIPPER PLUS™ Safety Needle allows you to de-access Huber needles in one safe, easy, natural motion.  Try it, you'll like it!
The new GRIPPER PLUS™ Safety Needle is used to deliver medications intravenously through a patient's implanted port.  Its unique feature is a safety arm that is lifted to lock the needle into a protected position when de-accessing it from an implanted port.  An audible click provides clinicians with confirmation that the de-accessed needle is in its locked safety position.  
The GRIPPER PLUS™ Safety Needle is safe for clinicians, comfortable for patients, and easy to use.  It also allows institutions to comply with NIOSH / CDC criteria for sharps safety.
The GRIPPER PLUS™ Safety Needle is based on the input of many clinicians and the design of the familiar GRIPPER® Huber needles, which are recognized as the gold standard in Huber needles.  In the last five years, Deltec has sold over 10 million GRIPPER® needles worldwide.
1: From behind the GRIPPER PLUS Safety Needle place fingers on each side of the base to stabilize it.  With the other hand, place a finger on the tip of the safety arm.
2: Begin to lift the safety arm straight back.  Notice that the needle comes out perfectly straight.
3:  Continue lifting the safety arm until the needle "clicks" into the lock position.  It is now safely out of the way, ready to be disposed of in a sharps container.
