The Safe Vent syringe venting system is a highly useful aid that improves the quality of blood sampling and also protects the medical technician when drawing arterial blood samples. After blood is drawn, the syringe is inserted into the Safe Vent unit and is then turned upward. As the needle punctures the unit's membrane, gas bubbles are released from the sample into a chamber blocked off by a self-sealing porous plastic plug. This process protects the technician from potentially harmful blood-borne pathogens and also securely captures the needle. The injection-molded medical grade K-resin body and sintered plastic self-sealing vent plug are the only two components in the compact unit, greatly conserving materials and reducing waste in production compared to existing state-of-the-art venting devices. Safe Vent's logical design revolutionizes this medical process by incorporating needle safety, an effective degassing utility, and speed/ease of use all within a friendly little package that has been tested and praised by professionals who look forward to the realization of this project.
