Does anyone use the BD Luer-Lok Access Device on Pediatric patients and mores specifically, pediatric oncology patients?

At my hospital we use a syringe and a blood transfer device. This luer-lock device looks like a neat bit of technology, though, and I wish we had them.

We don't use it to access right from the line, but we use a very similar device (we call them Angel Guards, not sure what the packages say) once we draw blood into a syringe to transfer the blood into tubes. I would think using any kind of device to draw directly into Vacu-tubes would put too much pressure on the line?

Ive used a lot of them but have never had much luck drawing from them. They are very easy to work with though.KEV

Ohh! My brain has gone dead because it's been so long since I just flat out drew blood (instead of drawing from a line or during an IV start.) We used those at my last job, not necessarily on peds patients though. I really liked them, very easy to use.

That's exactly what my institution uses, although I work with adult pts. I have no problems drawing from lines with them. Works great.
