BD announces collaboration with infusion pump specialist, CME Medical

Link-up further supports growing therapy area of subcutaneous infusion

The BD Saf-T-Intima Safety Integrated IV Catheter System

BD has annouced that following the approval of the BD Saf-T-Intima Safety Integrated IV Catheter System for use in subcutaneous infusion therapies, it will be collaborating with pain management and palliative care infusion pump specialist, CME Medical, to increase coverage in the UK and Ireland and to provide expanded specialist support to its growing Saf-T-Intima customer base.

Jonathan Hughes, UK marketing manager for BD, said: “BD Saf-T-Intima, for use in subcutaneous infusion therapies such as rehydration and palliative care, is growing in popularity due to an increasing number of healthcare professionals who are looking for ways to increase patient comfort and in-dwell times while enabling cost savings and reducing the risk of sharps injuries and infection.

“With palliative care being a key therapy area for subcutaneous infusion, it was a logical step for BD to collaborate with CME Medical, which already has a large and clinically-respected presence within acute and community care following the popularity and wide adoption of CME Medical’s T34 Ambulatory Syringe Pumps.”
