The BD Insyte-N™ Autoguard™ shielded IV catheter includes all of the features of the BD Insyte™ Autoguard™ shielded IV catheter in a 0.56-in catheter length. With the push of a button, the needle instantly retracts—reducing the risk of accidental needlestick injuries. The catheter is also made with BD Vialon™ biomaterial, which is designed to recover after kinking to help provide longer dwell times and therefore, minimize restarts.
BD push-button needle shielding technology is demonstrated to reduce needlestick injuries by 95%.1*
BD Vialon biomaterial
This unique proprietary biomaterial softens up to 70% in the vein, enabling longer dwell times2† and reducing the chance of mechanical phlebitis by up to 50%.2†
