B. Braun Medical Inc. Key Developments

B. Braun Medical Inc. Launches New STEADYCare™ Extension Set with Wedge™ Catheter Stabilizer

B. Braun Medical Inc. announced that it has launched its new STEADYCare™ Extension Set with Wedge™ Catheter Stabilizer - developed to help improve stabilization and reduce catheter-related complications. STEADYCare was designed to minimize catheter movement in the vessel, maintain the catheter insertion angle, and reduce the patient connector's skin contact. Market data shows that approximately 90% of hospitalized patients require an IV catheter during their hospital stay, while 35% to 50% of catheters fail during therapy. Failures and unscheduled restarts are caused by catheter-related complications such as infection, phlebitis, hematoma, thrombosis and occlusion. Movement of the catheter may contribute to these complications. STEADYCare was recently unveiled at this year's Association for Vascular Access (AVA) Annual Scientific Meeting and the product is now available for sale.

It was designed to minimize catheter movement in the vessel, maintain the catheter insertion angle, and reduce the patient connector's skin contact. Visitors to booth #309 will be able to see and handle the new STEADYCare at AVA and the product will be available for sale in October. The company also will feature its new Ster-ASSIST™ Sterile Peripheral IV Catheter Insertion Kit, one of the first comprehensive sterile IV kits supporting ultrasound-guided PIV insertion. To promote best practices in sterile technique and clinician safety, while still providing convenience, B. Braun has packaged into a single kit all of the components needed to perform ultrasound-guided peripheral IV therapy procedures. At its booth #309, B. Braun will showcase the following products and have an ultrasound PIVC placement demonstration station where attendees will be able to practice insertion techniques with the use of ultrasound. Attendees also will be able to visit distinct areas within the booth to learn how they can improve peripheral IV access. Introcan Safety® IV Catheter - Designed with innovative, fully automatic passive-safety features to help eliminate accidental needlestick injury. From needle removal to disposal, clinicians are protected by a passive-safety device that is activated automatically -- no extra steps required and cannot be bypassed. Introcan Safety® 3 Closed IV Catheter - B. Braun's latest advancement, which takes the same preferred passive-safety engineered needlestick protection found in Introcan Safety and adds additional automatic protection from blood exposure. For safety and convenience, Introcan Safety 3's unique multi-access blood control septum is designed to minimize blood exposure during needle removal and each time the catheter hub is accessed. InVision-Plus® Neutral IV Connector - The most recent addition to the B. Braun needleless connector portfolio provides a 10-point standard of features and is offered through an exclusive U.S. distribution agreement with RyMed Technologies, LLC. B.
