BETHLEHEM, Pa., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- B.Braun Medical Inc. (B.Braun) announced today that its Introcan Safety® 3 Closed IV Catheter received a 2012 Top 20 Innovation Award from EMS World Magazine, the leading monthly publication for the emergency medical services market. In this month's issue, Introcan Safety 3 is featured in an article on how it is improving the delivery of pre-hospital care by helping to reduce the risk of needlestick injuries and blood exposure, two major concerns that the EMS industry has been committed to addressing.

"We are proud to be recognized by EMS World Magazine for helping to protect the safety of EMS professionals throughout the U.S.," said Tom Sutton, Vice President of Vascular Access Systems at B.Braun. "We are passionately committed to providing safety engineered IV therapy devices designed for optimum safety, which is especially important in the pre-hospital setting," added Sutton.

From insertion to advancing the catheter to needle removal, the Introcan Safety 3 is designed to help protect healthcare workers and patients from needlestick injuries as the safety mechanism cannot be bypassed or activated inadvertently. The Introcan Safety 3 Closed IV Catheter offers an additional layer of safety and protection from blood borne pathogens with its multi-access blood control feature.
