A blood collection needle with a safety holder is a medical device designed for the safe and efficient collection of blood samples. The needle is securely attached to a holder, and it typically features safety mechanisms to reduce the risk of needlestick injuries or contamination during and after use.
Key features of a blood collection needle with a safety holder include:
Needle: The needle is designed for venepuncture, allowing healthcare professionals to draw blood from a patient’s vein.
Safety Holder: The needle is affixed to a safety holder, providing a secure and controlled grip for healthcare practitioners during the blood collection process.
Safety Mechanism: Many of these devices come equipped with safety features, such as a retractable needle or a shielding mechanism. These features help prevent accidental needlestick injuries and reduce the risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
Compatibility: Blood collection needles with safety holders are compatible with standard blood collection tubes and evacuated blood collection systems.
Sterility: The needle and holder are typically sterilized, ensuring aseptic conditions during blood collection procedures.
Ease of Use: The design of the safety holder allows for easy and precise insertion of the needle into the patient’s vein.
Single-Use: Many blood collection needles with safety holders are intended for single-use to maintain hygiene and prevent cross-contamination.
These devices contribute to the safety of both healthcare practitioners and patients during blood collection procedures by minimizing the risk of accidental needle injuries and promoting proper handling and disposal practices.
