VENOSAFE™ Securement & Stabilization Device

VENOSAFE™ is a stabilization and securement device that is strong enough to lock catheters, tubes and lines securely in place, yet versatile enough for almost any securement situation.

 

Manufactured catheter stabilization devices are now listed as “the preferred alternative to tape or sutures” in the new Infusion Nursing Standards of Practice.

 

The VENOSAFE™ Advantage

• SUPERIOR SECUREMENT from both vertical and horizontal accidental pulls.  VENOSAFE™ holds important lines in place better than tape while saving time, money and improving patient comfort.

• EASY TO USE, APPLY AND INSPECT even with gloved hands.

• STERILITY allows close positioning of VENOSAFE™ next to insertion site.

• HYPOALLERGENIC, BREATHABLE AND LATEX FREE to reduce the risk of allergic reactions and skin irritations.

• STANDARDIZED to conform to the new Infusion Nursing Standards of Practice1.

• SOFT AND FLEXIBLE FABRIC designed to prevent skin irritation and improve patient comfort.

 

SAFE VENOSAFE™ is latex free and packaged in individual sterile units, allowing placement of VENOSAFE™ close to the insertion site or right in the sterile field.
SIMPLE VENOSAFE™ is applied in the same simple manner as applying a piece of tape and can be easily placed and adjusted by gloved hands.
SECURE Durably engineered, VENOSAFE™ grips onto the skin better than tape and helps prevent dislodgement and migration, resulting in reduced risk of lost lines and patient discomfort. Using VENOSAFE™ for catheter stabilization conforms to the new Infusion Nursing Standards of Practice1 and can eliminate the need for sutures and unscheduled catheter restarts, thus directly reducing needle stick injuries2.
VERSATILE VENOSAFE™ can be universally used with a wide range of lines, tubes and virtually all catheter brands and types.
