Integrated Medical Systems, Inc. offers a broad portfolio of saline and heparin pre-filled products to meet your clinical needs, including externally sterile packaged syringes for sterile field applications. The BD PosiFlush™ family of pre-filled syringes provides reliable, cost-effective alternatives to vial-based flushing systems. Additionally, they are specifically designed to help reduce the risk of infections, medication errors, may help lower the risk of catheter damage and reduce disposal waste.
Syringe-induced blood reflux occurs during a flush procedure when the rubber stopper meets the end of the syringe. Comprised of rubber, it will compress and rebound when pressure is released – creating a vacuum that draws blood back into the catheter. The PosiFlush™ syringe is developed especially for flushing IV catheters and to overcome syringe-induced blood reflux, enhancing catheter maintenance protocols. With patients and providers in mind, IMS has you covered.
Syringe size has an impact on the risk of catheter damage – smaller diameter syringes generate greater amounts of pressure than larger diameter syringes. With a consistent 10mL diameter in all PosiFlush Saline and Heparin Syringes, you can be sure to get a lower pressure no matter what size you choose. All BD PosiFlush Syringes assure compliance with PICC manufacturer recommendations for flushing with a 10mL diameter syringe.
