Arterial Blood Gas Kits (ABG)
Vyaire offers a comprehensive portfolio of arterial blood gas sampling options for protection and accuracy when it's needed most. All blood samplers utilize lyophilized heparin to preserve blood sample integrity, which reduces the risk of dilution errors that may be associated with liquid heparin.
Included is a needle protection sheath that cores the bevel and encapsulates the contaminated needle to prevent blood spatter. The integral safety clips on the syringe allow for audible and visual confirmation that the needle is secure.
Syringes are available non-vented or with a rear vented system which automatically evacuates air out the back of the syringe as the blood fills during the draw.

Air can compromise the blood sample, leading to erroneous results. The pre-set plunger integrates a rear venting system, which automatically evacuates air out the back of the syringe as the blood fills during the draw.
In the event of a short blood draw, clinicians need an efficient way to remove the air left in the syringe. Coupled with the needle protection device, rear venting enables air bubbles to be evacuated without passing them through the blood sample. An integral media allows only the air to escape, and then expands and seals when contacted by blood.
The AirLife needle protection system provides clinicians with an unobstructed view of the arterial flash indicating the needle has entered the artery. By using a needle protection device that may obstruct flash visibility, there is a risk of the needle passing through the artery–possibly subjecting the patient to another puncture.
With the AirLife needle protection system, the clinician retains the freedom of drawing blood without needle protection devices that can get in the way.
The integral safety clips on the syringe allow for audible and visual confirmation that the needle is secure and cannot be removed from the AirLife needle protection system.
When it comes to needle coverage, the AirLife needle protection cores the bevel and encapsulates the contaminated needle following a blood draw. This helps eliminate the risk of blood splatter if the syringe is dropped. Once enclosed in the AirLife needle protection system, the needle is completely contained.
To help ensure the accuracy of ionized calcium results, reduced heparin compensates for calcium binding. If measuring electrolytes as part of blood gas analysis, choose these reduced heparin options for the most accurate results.
The ultra-thin wall needle minimizes trauma to the patient.
