Safety and Peace of Mind with MasterGuard Plus

MasterGuard Plus needles are designed with:

  • FingerShield® anchor to protect the fingers most at risk of needlesticks
  • FingerShield to provide a barrier between the pressure-holding fingers and the sharp tip of the needle

"I’ve been working in hemodialysis for 40 years, and I’ve seen every hemodialysis needle safety device that’s come along. I can safely say that, for all the right reasons, including safety and ease of cannulation, MasterGuard Plus is my first and only choice. I wouldn’t use anything else." – Joe Atkins, RN, MBA, CNN, CHT

  • Ultra thin walls, precisely ground bevels, and siliconized needle for smooth cannulation
  • Short hub minimizes leverage
  • Flexible wings with interlocking grips for precise control of the needle
  • Rotatable hub with bevel indicator dots (some codes) to reduce the risk of tissue damage associated with rotation of fixed wing needles

Needlesticks occur every day

  • On average, more than 1,000 needlestick and other sharps injuries occur daily in the United States1
  • It only takes one needlestick to transmit up to 30 blood-borne pathogens, including HBV, HCV, and HIV2

The consequences of 1 needlestick:

  • The potential changes to health and the stress of the testing process can be devastating for the affected caregiver.
  • A dialysis provider may incur healthcare costs up to $4,838.2
