BD Vacutainer UltraTouch Push Button Blood Collection Set
- Minimizes patient discomfort. PentaPoint bevel requires 32% less penetration force1.
- Improved venipuncture. Ultra-thin RightGauge cannula allows the use of a smaller gauge suitable for more veins, without compromising filling times or sample quality.
- Reduces accidental needlesticks up to 88%2. Single-handed, in-vein safety activation instantly retracts needle after use.
The BD Vacutainer UltraTouch Push Button Blood Collection Set is a sterile, multiple sample, single-use fixed winged blood collection set intended for venipuncture to obtain blood specimens from patients. When used without the male adapter, the device allows the clinician to obtain blood sampling to the female hub with a syringe, if necessary, or can be used for short-term, single infusions with consideration given to patient size and appropriateness for the solution being infused. The device is not to be left in place and remain under the direct supervision of a clinician.
The recommended use of the device is to activate the needle safety feature prior to removal from the venipuncture site. The retraction of the intravenous (IV) end of the needle aids in the prevention of accidental needlestick injury.
