Reducing the risk of injury for healthcare workers
Sharps related injuries, particularly those with contaminated blood, are of great concern to all healthcare workers. In addition to the injury at the puncture site, there is considerable risk from exposure to blood-borne viruses and a high degree of associated psychological distress. Surflo® Safety IV Catheters provide improved safety and ease of use for healthcare workers performing standard IV venepuncture procedure
The stylet is automatically encapsulated in the cover as it is removed.
The safety mechanism cannot be bypassed by the end user.
Full Safety Cover
The stylet is fully covered when withdrawn thus reducing the risk of blood splash.
Using TERUMO’s proprietary Surflash technology, the clinician has visual confirmation the instant the catheter tip is in the vein to increase first stick success.
Blood Check Valve
The catheter features an enhanced blood check valve which helps reduce blood exposure. The blood check valve prevents leakage from the catheter hub.
