Press both sides of the needle hub. Whilst pressing, pull it back until a slight “snap“ is felt, an audible click is heard and the safety mechanism is securely activated. After activation the needle is completely surrounded by the housing; the mechanism stays locked.
Prior to venipuncture disinfect the puncture site according to protocol and inspect the Venofix® Safety. If the packaging or the product is damaged in any way, please dispose of it immediately. Start insertion at a 10°-20° angle.
When fixating Venofix® Safety make sure that the safety mechanism in the needle hub is not hindered.
