BD 306550 - SYRINGE, SALINE, POSIFLUSH, 5 ML, WITH BPC, 30/BX
306550 - 5 mL BD PosiFlush Normal Saline Syringe, in 10 mL syringe with BD Blunt Plastic Cannula (NHRIC: 8290-306550)
BD PosiFlush Pre-Filled Saline Syringe complies with major PICC manufacturer recommendations for flushing with a 10-mL syringe. It also improves clinician efficiency and workflow by eliminating the steps and time involved in the manual preparation of saline syringes.
Impact to solution contamination
Designed to prevent solution from entering a nonsterile area of the syringe, the product helps reduce the risk of solution contamination. The saline pre-filled flush products feature a sterile fluid pathway.
Impact to catheter dwell time
A failed IV catheter means pain, dissatisfaction, prolongation of care and venous depletion, compounded by the need to treat minor and severe IV catheter failure-related sequelae.
Reduced medication errors
The syringe supports efforts to reduce the risk of medication errors by meeting Joint Commission and ISMP medication labeling guidelines.
Varying sizes to meet your flushing needs
The syringe is conveniently available in 3-, 5- and 10-mL sizes. All of these sizes feature a consistent 10-mL syringe barrel diameter that may help lower the risk of catheter damage caused by injection pressure.

Designed to Meet Your Needs
Designed to Enhance Best Clinical Practice
Flush with the smallest recommended volume
Infusion Nurses Society (INS) recommends that the minimum volume of the final flush solution should be twice the labeled priming volume of the catheter and any added devices.
A 3 mL BD PosiFlush Saline Syringe provides more than twice the priming volume recommended.
Consistent 10 mL diameter designed to lower the risk of catheter damage
Syringe size has an impact on the risk of catheter damage. Smaller diameter syringes generate greater amounts of pressure than larger diameter syringes.
Choose any size BD PosiFlush Syringe for lower pressure due to the 10 mL syringe diameter (as compared to standard syringes). All BD PosiFlush Syringes assure compliance with PICC manufacturer recommendations for with a 10 mL diameter syringe.
Use the appropriate flushing volume for sodium-restricted patient needs
Through the unique design of BD PosiFlush, clinicians can deliver the appropriate volume with minimum salt impact in a 10 mL diameter syringe.
- Tear open package at either end and remove syringe.
- Depress plunger with tip cap on to relieve the resistance between the stopper and the barrel (Fig. a).
- Using aseptic technique, remove the syringe tip cap from the FLUSH syringe by twisting it off (Fig. b).
- Hold the syringe upright and expel the air and any excess solution in the syringe by positioning the front rib of the gray plunger tip at desired solution volume (Fig. c).
- Attach the syringe to the injection site and flush, following your institutions policy.
Discard used syringe, including any unused solution, following your institutions policy (Fig. d). DO NOT REUSE
- 3, 5 and 10 mL BD PosiFlush Syringes all have the same diameter as a standard 10 mL syringe and may be used for flushing catheters when protocols stipulate use of a 10 mL syringe to minimize flush pressure (PSI).
- Please read labeling at all times.
