Reduce Needlestick Injuries


Introcan Safety® Family

Studies have shown that user-activated safety devices are deployed only 83% of the time (reference: Victoria Valls, 20071). Passive safety design is proven to be more effective than user-activated design (reference: Y. Linuna, 20052).

The B. Braun Introcan Safety® Family of IV Catheters with Passive Safety Technology:

Deploy Automatically

  • Safety feature requires no user activation — no button, twists or clicks
  • Safety shield stays in place through disposal

Cannot Be Bypassed

  • Unique, patented safety design automatically engages safety shield upon needle withdrawal
  • Safety shield protects needle tip to prevent needlestick injury without any additional steps

Promote Compliance
