NEW EasyPoint retractable needles feature automated retraction technology and pre-removal capability that has made Retractable Technologies the industry standard, but with added versatility. They can be used with luer lock and luer slip syringes, including pre-filled syringes. When the color-coded activation tab is pressed, the needle automatically retracts into the safety chamber and remains enclosed through disposal. Upon needle retraction, the syringe luer tip is covered, reducing the risk of exposure to medication or blood and body fluids. EasyPoint retractable needles are easy to use, allowing single-handed activation, while the clinician's fingers remain behind the exposed sharp at all times.
PRODUCT USAGE INFORMATION
Using aseptic technique, open package and securely attach
the EasyPoint needle to a syringe. Carefully remove needle
cap. Do not apply pressure to the color-coded tab during
needle cap removal. Once needle cap has been removed,
do not apply pressure to the color-coded tab until needle
retraction is desired.
According to institutional policy, select and prepare
the injection/aspiration site and prepare and administer
medication using aseptic technique.
Upon completion of medication administration, apply
pressure to the color-coded tab and the safety chamber
using a squeezing motion. Do not push the color-coded
tab upward. This device is designed for activation before
or after removing the needle from the patient. Pre-removal
activation minimizes exposure to the contaminated needle
and reduces the risk of needlestick injuries. Activation can
be achieved in a variety of ways.
