More Information

Needlestick protection in your hands! Here’s how it works: as you slide the catheter off the introducer needle, the protective guard glides into place over the needle. You are never exposed to a contaminated needle because the guard locks into place over the needle before the needle is removed from the catheter hub. A reassuring “click” lets you know the needle has been safely and permanently locked within the guard. No need to transport a contaminated needle.

Questions and Answers


Do PROTECTIV PLUS IV Catheters have a blood stop?

Jared J.- On Tuesday, 11 January 2022


No, PROTECTIV PLUS IV Catheters do not have blood stop technology. For that you would need BD Insyte Autoguard BC IV Catheters, ViaValve IV Catheter with Blood Control, or INTROCAN Safety 3 Closed I.V. Catheters.
