|Designed for simplicity and convenience during operation, the stay•safe® system facilitates better patient compliance.|
|Patent-protected in-line closing||The unique PIN system automatically closes the catheter extension before disconnection. This minimises the possibility of related touch contamination.|
|50% less risk steps with stay•safe®||PIN technology eliminates 1,460 risk steps* per patient year compared with conventional systems, thus contributing lower risk of contamination.|
|Guided operation||The control switch of the DISC guides patients through all essential steps of the procedure facilitating confidence and improved compliance.|
|Free from breaking cones and clamps||With the DISC your patients do not have to worry about clamping the wrong lines or forgetting where they are in the procedure.|
|Connections per day||4||4|
|Disconnections per day||0||4|
|Risk steps per year||1,460||2,920|
