Dangerous complications such as infiltration, phlebitis, and dislodgement can be caused by harmful forces on peripheral IV lines and may ultimately lead to an IV restart. Lineus’ device, SafeBreak Vascular, is the first of its kind in a brand-new classification of devices called Force-Activated Separation Devices. As these forces cause IV-line tension, SafeBreak intentionally separates to protect the patient and the peripheral IV catheter. Upon separation, a valve on the patient side closes to prevent blood loss and a valve on the IV end closes to prevent expensive, and potentially hazardous, fluid spills. SafeBreak allows for fewer peripheral IV mechanical complications requiring IV replacement and ultimately prevents patients from having additional painful needle sticks.
