IV Catheter Safety Mechanisms
Active Safety

This type of catheter typically features a mechanism that is manually activated to protect
against accidental needlestick injuries during catheter removal.

Active safety IV catheters are designed to be user-controlled, offering an additional layer
of protection to healthcare workers during catheter removal, thereby reducing the risk
of needlestick injuries and potential exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
