SAFE-Flow

SAFE-Flow addresses the problem of backtracking, one of the most common areas of administrative error during drug delivery.

Incorporating two non-return valves, SAFE-Flow ensures the right direction for drug delivery every time.

In 2009 the National Patient Safety Agency published recommendations by the Safe Anaesthesia Liaison Group (SALG) for drug infusion through the same cannula[1].

SALG identified that a non-return valve prevents backflow of anaesthetic agent into the intravenous fluid line ensuring the patient is receiving the drug as intended.

An MHRA Alert in 2010 further highlighted the risk of backtracking with IV lines entering multiple ports[2].

Using SAFE-Flow will help reduce your concerns.
