Ethicon, Inc. offers ETHIGUARD Blunt Point Needles. According to the company, the ETHIGUARD Blunt Point Needle is a solution that helps protect healthcare practitioners and patients from needlestick injuries without compromising performance.

Features include:

  • Compliance with the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act standards. 
  • Development from a heat-treated, stainless steel alloy that delivers optimal strength and ductility to resist bending and breaking.
  • Blunt point geometry that allows for easy soft-tissue penetration with no more additional bleeding or patient trauma than with a conventional taper needle.
  • A ribbed and flattened body that affords stability in the needle holder, for improved protection against slipping.
