SmartSite Needle-Free Injection Site
Y versions of the Huber Plus Safety Infusion Sets are supplied with SmartSite Y needle-free injection sites which should only be used with standard male Luer fittings on syringes or administration sets. Aseptically prepare the SmartSite entry port per institutional protocol before attaching a male Luer fitting. Do not insert hypodermic or blunt needles into the SmartSite.
Indications For Use
The Huber Plus Safety Infusion Set is a safety IV administration set with a non-coring right angle Huber needle used to access surgically implanted vascular ports. The Huber Plus is used to administer fluids or to withdraw blood. The Huber Plus facilitates safe removal of the needle by encapsulating the needle within the wings to help prevent needlestick injuries when using the device for vascular port access.
