VenaValve®: IV
catheter blood control made simple and elegant

The problem with IV catheter blood exposure

Regular Safety IV Catheters instruct the clinician to apply venous compression to the vein while removing the needle to restrict blood flow until a luer connection is made. But it can be difficult to apply compression while simultaneously connecting the catheter hub to the male luer of an IV line or blood collection tube holder

Complications often arise, and blood leakage and exposure to the patient and clinician has been reported in 10 to 27% of attempted connections.* In addition, blood exposure poses a risk for bloodborne pathogens and may increase patient anxiety and discomfort.
