- It’s shorter needle tip makes it easier to handle.
Keep the needle and syringe sterile. Check that the package is well sealed or that the cap of the needle and the piston cap hasn’t been previously removed or opened. Avoid using the syringes if the packaging is damaged. As the main use of the arterial blood collection syringe is blood extraction, they are used to avoid the risk of infection from one patient to another. A syringe that isn’t sterilized properly is a potential source of diseases, therefore avoid it at all costs.
Start by placing the patient’s arm in a downward position and clean venipuncture site with alcohol. Then apply a tourniquet. Remove the upper cover of the needle and assemble the needle in the holder. Continue by performing venipuncture with arm downward and tube stopper upper-most. Push tube onto the needle, puncturing stopper diaphragm. Release the tourniquet as soon as blood appears in the tube and remove the tube from the holder when the first tube has filled to its stated volume and blood flow ceases.Then, turn the filled tube upside-down and return it to upright positions and repeat this inversion according to different additive performance.
Place succeeding tubes in the holder, puncturing diaphragm to begin. As soon as blood stops flowing in the last tube, remove the tube from the holder and remove the needle from the vein, applying pressure to puncture site with the dry sterile swab until bleeding stops.
Dispose of the needles into Sharps Disposal Containers according to related policies and guidelines.
- Do not re-use syringes that have already been used before, including mixing syringes. Used, disposable syringes cannot be sterilized and eventually change shape at high temperatures, which are necessary for sterilization. Health workers who try to decontaminate, clean and sterilize disposable equipment are at risk of accidental injuries. Reusing syringes and needles can also transmit infections between patients or from patient to doctor/nurse;
- Prepare injections in a clean, designated area that is free from blood and body fluid contamination;
- Follow product-specific recommendations for storage, handling and use of vaccines;
- Do not remove the used needle from the syringe with your hands;
- Always use a new syringe every time the blood collection is performed on a new patient;
- Discard a syringe that has touched any non-sterile surface and do not use it.
