The BD Autoguard™ technology is the only safety-engineered catheter proven to demonstrate effective needlestick reduction. The unique push-button shielding mechanism releases the spring and allows the needle and flash chamber to quickly retract into the safety barrel. This allows the clinician to maintain control of the process by deciding when to activate the push-button shielding mechanism.
Blood Control Technology: a three-ridge design helps better control insertion and catheter advancement for first stick success. No venous compression needed during insertion. Less mess and minimized healthcare worker risk resulting form blood exposure. Less blood leakage means less disruption to patient care.
