Safety Huber needle with single hand activation: decreased blood exposure risk versus double activated device
As vascular access experts, we know how important it is for patients and clinicians, that the combination of implantable ports and Huber needles maximise treatment effectiveness and minimise risks.
Key qualities in the design of our Huber needles include safety features to protect against needlestick injuries and to minimise the risk of occlusion after the needle is withdrawn.
Other benefits include ease of use with single hand activation and a simple, straight-forward withdrawal process.
In addition to the comprehensive benefits in our polyperf safe Huber needle, the Vygon range features needles with special features to address particular clinical needs. They are:
- PPS flow + – single-handed removal plus automatic positive pressure helps to reduce catheter occlusion
- PPSCT – power injection compatible Huber needle for use with contrast agents
- Pefusafe2 – a low profile design ideal for paediatric patients and oncology and haematology patients requiring extended treatment.
Safe and secure
Our polyfilm securement dressing is specially designed to ensure the Huber needles remain in place. They feature an adhesive central window to ensure easy removal without displacing the needle.
