To ensure compliance, all blood gas samplers must incorporate safety-engineered protection mechanisms, and hospitals are required to implement procedures for the safe use and disposal of medical sharps; recapping of blood gas sampler needles is no longer permitted. Radiometer’s safePICO70 arterial blood gas syringes offer a proven, safe and easy to use way of meeting the specific requirements of the directive, helping to eliminate needle-stick injuries and protect staff from exposure to patient blood. The built-in safety device can be operated with one hand, and allows the simple and safe removal of needles. Once a blood sample has been taken from the patient, the operator just slides the needle shield over the needle and locks it safely into place. The needle, safely contained within the shield, can then be detached and disposed of safely.
