Surgical Sharps Protection

Atrion NeedleVISE 1-Port

Steps:

Before starting the procedure, place the procedure tray on a flat, stable surface within the sterile field and make sure that the NeedleVISE® sharps securing system is securely mounted in an upright position within the tray.

Immediately following use of a needle and while still being held with one hand away from the sharp end, firmly insert the sharp end using a rotating motion into the NeedleVISE® until the needle is secure. Make sure to KEEP YOUR FREE HAND AWAY FROM THE NEEDLEVISE® SHARPS SECURING SYSTEM DURING INSERTION. This action will lock the needle firmly into the NeedleVISE® device. In some instances,
an uncontaminated needle, once captured within the NeedleVISE® sharps securing system, may have the of a new needle onto the syringe for use on the same patient.

Once the procedure is completed, the NeedleVISE® sharps securing system with secured sharps should be removed from the procedure tray and placed in a sharps container.

Atrion NeedleVISE® 1-Port

The NeedleVISE® sharps securing system is a multiple needle, single patient procedure use, disposable device used for securing the specialized needles found in procedural trays. The NeedleVISE® sharps securing system has internal one-way metal clips for retaining up to 5 used 17-27 Gauge sharps.

The NeedleVISE® sharps securing system is intended for use in sterile procedure trays within the sterile field as a sharps securing device for contaminated specialized needles that do not have integral engineered sharps safety devices.
