Blood Donor Set Tube Holders, Protective
Definition : Tube holders that consist of a recessed needle holder that mates with a sampling site attached to the donor tubing. These tube holders typically have a tubing access needle on one end--this functions as the blood needle--and a tube-puncturing needle on the opposite end. The user attaches the tubing-access needle to the sampling site and then places a blood collection tube on the tube-puncturing needle to obtain samples. Protective sampling tube holders are used to prevent accidental needlesticks, by allowing the user to collect blood from a blood donor set without using a blood donor needle.
