• Arterial blood gas sampling is an invasive procedure that can result in accidental needlestick injury and exposure to bloodborne pathogens. The Pulset™ ABG Syringe features SafetyTip™ Needlestick Protection to help prevent accidental needlestick injuries in your care setting. SafetyTip™ Needlestick Protection is engineered as an integral part of the needle to comply with all FDA, OSHA and NIOSH guidelines. Intuitive, single hand safety activation is easy to learn and simple to use. Distinctive by design, SafetyTip™ provides optimum visualization of the insertion site. With the needle bevel facing up, the protective sheath aligns parallel to the syringe barrel, resulting in a clear, unobstructed view. In addition, the patented Dual Locking design promotes your safety by securely covering the needle with an audible click.

  • Westmed makes a number of unique blood gas sampling kits for special applications, such as drawing specimens from arterial catheters (A-lines) in patients of all ages and umbilical artery lines (UA-lines) in neonates. In addition, a special kit is available for the Labor & Delivery Suite and NICU to obtain a pair of labeled umbilical cord specimens (arterial and venous) shortly after birth for cord blood gases and pH.
