ViaValve Safety IV Catheters

ViaValve Safety IV Catheter provides blood control to help reduce the risk of blood exposure and contamination. A unique valve inside the catheter hub impedes blood flow from the patient's vein upon initial venipuncture. The catheter, once in the patient's vein, is activated by attaching the Luer fitting of an infusion line which opens the valve to allow unrestricted flow.


ViaValve Safety IV Catheter also helps prevent unintended needlesticks. Its safety guard surrounds the retracted introducer needle and produces a "click" to indicate that the needle is contained for handling and disposal.

  • Ocrilon® polyurethane catheter softens and becomes more pliable longer in-dwell
  • Introducer promotes one-handed insertion and threading
  • Catheter's ribbed hub facilitates catheter securement
  • FLASH-VUE early flash indicator reveals when the needle tip enters the vein, featured on the gauges 20 to 24
  • V-point needle helps maximize patient comfort with low penetration force
