Vasofix Safety IV Catheter
The Vasofix safety IV cannula from B. Braun offers increased security thanks to a safety clip. This safety mechanism cannot be bypassed - thus reducing the risk of needle stick injury and the associated risk of infection when handling the cannula.
The safety IV cannula has an injection port that allows for quick drug transfer without the need to repuncture.

Which Cannula Size?
For adults, green (18 G) or white (17 G) brown catheters are commonly used. If the vein appears particularly thin, a pink (20 G) or blue (22 G) cannula is recommended. Note: For thick cannulas (17 G or less), a local anaesthetic can be injected at the puncture site before puncture. An anaesthetic cream can also relieve puncture pain, especially in children.
TRBA 250 - What You Need to Know
The aim of TRBA 250 is to reduce needlestick injuries. The new TRBA 250 makes the use of safe instruments mandatory for all activities in which "body fluids can be transferred in quantities relevant to infection". Blood samples and other punctures to remove body fluids are explicitly mentioned in this context.Employers are responsible for providing and instructing appropriate products.
